The NABERS Waste rating for offices measures two things: the amount of ‘materials generated’ by a building, and how much of that is diverted from landfill/disposal. NABERS is a national rating system that measures the environmental performance of Australian buildings, tenancies and homes. NABERS measures the energy efficiency, water usage, waste management and indoor environment quality of a building or tenancy and its impact on the environment.
Waste Audit and Consultancy Services have NABERS Accredited Assessors who can conduct the Waste Audits needed to attain an official rating for your building. The NABERS rating is based on a simplified Waste Audit where ten consecutive days are used to represent the behaviour of a building (and its occupants) throughout the year. This Waste Audit should not disrupt the habitual performance of an office. The results are measured against the NABERS Waste benchmarks and your building is given a star rating that represents that level of performance.
