New Waste rating for whole buildings

The NABERS Waste whole building rating for offices is now available. This new rating complements the existing NABERS Waste base building rating for offices.

What’s the difference between a base building and whole building Waste rating?

A base building Waste rating measures:

  • the core waste streams common to every building (e.g. general waste, mixed recycling, paper and cardboard)
  • any specialty waste streams provided by the building management (e.g. food waste and soft plastics)

A whole building Waste rating measures:

  • day-to-day waste produced in the building including different waste streams managed by tenants (e.g. secure paper bins and excess catering donated to charity).

What’s the benefit of getting a Waste rating?

A Waste rating helps you: 

  • track and report improvements in recycling
  • compare your performance to similar buildings
