Why is NABERS conducting this consultation?
The NABERS governance arrangements have been reviewed to ensure they provide the appropriate strategic and functional support for the long-term success of the program. This consultation process invites NABERS stakeholders to provide feedback and comments on the proposed changes outlined in the consultation paper titled Proposed Changes to NABERS Governance.
How long is the consultation?
The consultation will open at 3pm (AEDT) on Thursday 2 February 2017 and will close at 5pm (AEDT) on Friday 10 March 2017.
What is expected of me during this consultation?
What is the current governance structure, and what is being proposed?
The NABERS program is administered by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage and has two main governance bodies: the National Steering Committee (NSC) consisting of governments from each jurisdiction and a Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) comprised of various industry groups and representatives. These groups are tasked with advising and making decisions on a range of strategic and technical issues, risks and opportunities relevant to the NABERS program.
Under the proposed new structure, the governance arrangements would move from two to three groups, consisting of a Government Forum, an Industry Forum and a smaller Leadership Group. These groups will include a broad range of NABERS stakeholders, and provide access to a number of new and relevant skills needed to inform future decisions and strategic direction for the program.
What will happen once the consultation phase closes?
Once the consultation process finished, NABERS will consider the feedback received from stakeholders and use this to inform the level of changes required to the program’s governance structure. Major changes to the governance structure will require approval by the NSW Minister for the Environment.
