7 Minute Listen


All eyes are on office landlords as occupiers prioritise energy efficiency. But where are the best opportunities, is age a barrier and could there be untapped potential in the premium and A-grade sector?

In this episode of Talking Property we discuss how the latest research report “NABERhood Watch” quantifies the benefits and opportunities from better NABERs ratings for Australia’s office stock. This should be valuable as investors build-out their business case for net zero assets.
