Upgrade your building
Environmental Upgrade Agreements (EUAs) are a smarter way to finance your building upgrade
EUAs use private finance to upgrade non-strata commercial buildings.
The savings pay for the upgrades
Building upgrades can deliver significant savings that can be used to repay the upgrade finance.
Owners and tenants share the benefits
Owners and tenants can both gain from maximising a building’s energy efficiency. An EUA allows owners and tenants to share these benefits.
To date tenants have contributed approximately 50 per cent of the cost of EUA funded energy efficiency projects.
A longer loan term
An EUA is secured finance so it can be locked in for a longer term, up to 15 years. This increases the likelihood that the savings generated will be greater than the EUA repayments and better match the life of the upgraded equipment.
The EUA is attached to the land
EUA finance is attached to the land. If the land is sold, the EUA may be transferred to the new owners or discharged on settlement.
Eligible works include those that focus on:
- energy and water efficiency
- renewable energy
- reducing greenhouse gas emissions
- preventing or reducing pollution
- reducing the use of materials
- recovery or recycling of materials
- monitoring environmental performance
- encouraging alternatives to car travel, such as walking and cycling
