NABERS International

Since it started in NSW in 1998, NABERS has expanded its reach to the following countries.


NABERSNZ is an adaptation of the National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS). The NSW Government has licensed NABERS to the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) in New Zealand. This is the government agency that works to improve the energy efficiency of New Zealand's homes and businesses and encourage the uptake of renewable energy. The EECA has been operating NABERSNZ since 2012. NABERSNZ is administered by the New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC), and ratings are carried out by assessors trained in NZ.


NABERS is also being redeveloped for use in the UK. Starting in June 2019, our three-year partnership with the UK’s Better Building Partnership (BBP)  will allow NABERS to be used in the UK to measure the sustainability of existing and new UK buildings. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between NABERS and the BBP will allow the UK to adapt, trial and implement the NABERS Energy for Offices program so that buildings in the UK can be certified. Australian building sustainability companies will be able to export their NABERS assessment and building management services to UK companies.

Other countries

NABERS has also conducted pilot certifications for buildings in India in 2015, and later Hong Kong and Indonesia in 2017.
