Achieving High NABERS All Round

Holiday Inn Express Brisbane Central has officially been awarded with a 5-star Energy and 5.5-star Water NABERS Rating!

Across its portfolio – extending beyond Fund I to its Managed Accounts too, Pro-invest achieved high rated NABERS ratings in the last 12 months, remaining dedicated to verifying its ESG performance even in the midst of COVID-19 impacted date and occupancy disruptions.

Holiday Inn Express Brisbane Central positions as the only hotel to currently actively hold a 5.5-star NABERS Water rating, as per the NABERS Rating Register accessed 26 March 2021.

The Holiday Inn Express Brisbane Central’s NABERS ratings now joins Pro-invest’s growing >5-star NABERS collection, supported through the achievements by Pro-invest’s Holiday Inn Express Newcastle and Holiday Inn Express Sydney Macquarie Park which respectively hold 5-star NABERS Energy and Water ratings, along with Pro-invest’s managed account, the Sebel Canberra Civic, which too has obtained NABERS ratings. Sebel Canberra Civic achieved a 5.5-star NABERS Energy rating (the highest in Australia for hotels at time of writing) and a 5-star NABERS Water rating.

Efforts to have the Holiday Inn Express Adelaide City Centre hotel NABERS rated are well underway.

DISCLOSURE: At Pro-invest Group, we are committed to understanding our environmental performance and obtaining independent certification to verify our environmental endeavours across our portfolios. We are proud to have consistently obtained such verifications year on year since 2017 with our cornerstone Fund 1 asset. However, we recognise that 2020 has delivered a trading year that was far from usual, with COVID-19 impacting much of the operational data.  As such, these current NABERS results should be viewed in the context of having been achieved during other than “standard/normal” trading conditions and with a revised calculation methodology. Moving forward, having dealt with the challenges of the past year, we remain committed to implementing our ESG strategies, and playing our part in supporting the hotel industry progress towards a more sustainable future through the adoption of external verification mechanisms.
