The Benefits of a Sustainably Built Commercial Building

HOME / Blog / The Benefits of a Sustainably Built Commercial Building

Implementing and following sustainable practices is a high priority for many businesses. But this commitment extends beyond just corporate responsibility – sustainability can be integrated into a company’s electrical installations, reducing their energy consumption and environmental impact, minimising resource wastage, and optimising their electrical system. Our teams at Haines Electrical specialise in sustainable electrical services for commercial and industrial properties. 

Adopting sustainable electrical solutions is fast becoming an essential component for any business aiming to lead the way in an increasingly eco-conscious environment. 

Sustainability Accreditations

Two of the key sustainability measurements for commercial properties are the National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) and the Green Building Council Australia Green Star.

NABERS provides a clear indication of how efficiently a building is using resources such as energy, water, and waste, offering businesses a benchmark for improving their operational performance. Green Star focuses on the environmental impact of a building’s design, construction, and fit-out. By achieving high ratings in both NABERS and Green Star, Brisbane businesses can demonstrate their commitment to environmental sustainability, attract environmentally conscious tenants and customers, and often qualify for incentives and rebates.

A more environmentally friendly building can also reduce a business’s operational costs through lower overheads and energy costs. Businesses in a more sustainable building can also benefit from tax incentives, grants, and rebates for environmentally conscious construction and retrofitting.

Our team of master electricians are expertly trained to complete any electrical installation on commercial premises to meet the standards required to achieve high NABERS and Green Star ratings.

The Commercial Benefits Of A Sustainable Electrical System

Once achieving high star levels of NABERS and Green Star on their builds, our clients report improvements in their energy consumption, water efficiency, and indoor air quality levels, lower operating costs, and enhanced marketability. By increasing their environmental regulation compliance, businesses can also find themselves at the forefront of the commercial space, able to leverage new technologies and practices that set them apart from competitors. This proactive approach not only ensures compliance with current regulations but also positions them to adapt quickly to future changes, creating a culture of continuous improvement and innovation.

By switching to sustainable electrical systems and achieving high NABERS and Green Star ratings, our commercial clients are contributing to a healthier planet and enhancing their operational efficiency, market position, and long-term profitability.


At Haines Electrical, we take pride in our commitment to sustainable and environmentally conscious electrical work. Backed by our ISO 14001 accreditation, our commercial electricians can help our clients achieve Green Star and NABERS accreditation, which offers numerous benefits for commercial properties in energy savings.
