The Australian Government Department of the Environment and Energy has released the draft Standard for public consultation - open from 30 November 2016 until 10 February 2017. The Department worked with the National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS), the Green Building Council of Australia, carbon accounting experts and property sector businesses to develop the draft Standard.
