Environmental Upgrade Agreements (EUAs) have the potential to unlock billions of dollars in the retrofits of older commercial buildings and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

EUAs work by enabling companies to borrow money to upgrade the environmental performance of their building. The loan is paid off by the money saved in lower energy bills. The payment can be made as part of council rates. Benefits include a lower cost of finance, an upgraded building, and a more comfortable building for tenants.

The Fifth Estate has developed a step-by-step guide for anyone who wants to be part of a commercial building retrofit including:

  • Owners
  • Tenants
  • Commercial property agents and advisers
  • Local Government Authorities and government agencies
  • Consultants, property and asset managers
