Finalist in the 2019 Premier's Sustainability Awards – Innovative Products or Services category
Better Building Finance informs local councils about the opportunity for increased economic, employment and environmental outcomes afforded by Environmental Upgrade Agreements (EUAs). The program helps manage EUAs within councils, supporting both their sustainability objectives and helping local businesses through access to affordable capital they need to become low carbon.
In 2018 the initiative financed 26 environmental upgrade projects at an investment of $10.5 million, generating 2.4MW of solar power, which will lead to the abatement of 178,000 tonnes of emissions over the life of the projects.
