Sustainable finance has been an area of interest to NABERS for some time. We've been closely monitoring green bond issuances in the property sector and are encouraged by the uptake of sustainable finance solutions many of our customers are pursuing.
We want to see more green finance unlocked in our industry. To help our customers access green finance, we've developed a Sustainable Finance Industry Guide in collaboration with the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA), GRESB and the Climate Bonds Initiative (CBI).
The guide covers:
How our collective customers can use our programs to maximise the financial strategies and investments they are committing to.
How world class performance and benchmarking programs such as NABERS, Green Star and GRESB can support investment and how our organisations align together in the green bond landscape.
How ratings and associated data can be used in issuances and show the market opportunities that are currently untapped.
