The Australian Government commissioned the development of software to estimate the emissions reduction and energy savings arising from future changes to the National Construction Code.
Energy Efficiency in Government Operations (EEGO) aims to reduce the energy consumption of Australian Government operations with particular emphasis on energy efficiency in buildings. Find detailed information about the analysis of the use and effectiveness of the Australian Government's Green Lease Schedules in the report below.
The Green Lease Handbook complements the Tenant's Guide and contains more detailed legal and technical information.
The guide provides an overview of the basic concepts and elements of Green Leasing, to assist private tenants to achieve better environmental outcomes from the leasing and on-going management of their office space.
This report was commissioned by the Department of the Environment and Energy who have managed the project on behalf all Australian jurisdictions under Measure 31.2 of the National Energy Productivity Plan.
The Green Lease Schedule is a formal commitment between tenants and building owners which sets a minimum ongoing operational building energy performance standard. The Australian Government has led the way in the use of green leases and in 2006 introduced Green Lease Schedule requirements for new office leases as a key component to the Energy Efficiency in Government Operations (EEGO) policy.
