Building Better Returns (2011)


Using the National Australian Built Environment Rating Scheme (NABERS) energy and Green Star environmental rating schemes, this project seeks to empirically investigate the financial performance of green office buildings in Australia. This is the first rigorous empirical analysis done in this important area for Australian office property.

The research sees a significant portfolio of green office buildings in Sydney and Canberra benchmarked against a portfolio of non-green office buildings, and the property financial performance premiums attached to green office buildings empirically assessed, including rent, value, outgoings, yield and occupancy rate premiums.

The added value of green office buildings is clearly highlighted, with major insights regarding their financial performance.
