NABERS offers a service for property portfolios wanting to understand how their overall performance compares to their competitors - the NABERS Sustainable Portfolios Index (SPI). It has fast become Australia's most crucial public benchmarking tool for property companies in Australia. Last year, we saw growth of almost 50% in the numbers of portfolios participating!
The NABERS Sustainable Portfolios Index provides a one-stop-shop for the environmental performance of portfolios and funds across Australia.
Don't miss your chance to be included in the next Sustainable Portfolios Index.
Applications close soon!

The SPI is open to all portfolios with NABERS Energy or Water Ratings for Offices and Shopping Centres, and NABERS Waste and Indoor Environment for Offices. As few as two NABERS ratings across the portfolio in the same asset class is sufficient for inclusion.
We believe that great environmental outcomes are forged through a combination of commitment and action. We are providing this service because we want to give celebrate Australia's most sustainable property companies and empower investors to choose the most sustainable portfolios. This is increasingly important as many companies move towards their net zero targets.
Leading building portfolios use NABERS ratings as part of their sustainability strategies to measure and enable continuous improvements in energy and water efficiency, materials recovery and indoor environment. Currently, portfolios can participate free of charge.
The NABERS Sustainable Portfolios Index complements other popular ESG indicators (like GRESB) for investment decisions in Australia and overseas. It showcases portfolios that are committed to improving their sustainability performance and are leading the world in making their progress open and transparent.
Tips for strong performance:
- Ensure all your properties in your portfolio have a NABERS rating by 31 December 2020 for inclusion in the 2021 index
- Consider adding NABERS Waste or Indoor Environment ratings to your portfolios to find out where your portfolio stands on two of the newest NABERS benchmarks
- Contact Climate Works for inclusion in their Net Zero Momentum tracker
The NABERS Sustainable Portfolios Report will be released in April 2021.
