Eco Rating System for homes

The New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC) and Beacon Pathway are currently working to develop a system for assessing the performance of New Zealand residential homes.

The rating system is set to be available from mid-2010, when homeowners will be able to access a free assessment online to obtain a rating of up to four stars.

In order to get a 5 –10 star-rating homes would require an independent assessment.

The new system would consider factors such as energy consumption, health and comfort in the home, waste and construction materials when allocating ratings.
