Cromwell ranks top five in NABERS Sustainable Portfolio Index (SPI)


The NABERS Sustainable Portfolio Index (SPI) results have been released for 2024 – and Cromwell has again achieved a top five position for both the Cromwell Direct Property Fund and Cromwell’s investment portfolio.

Cromwell’s Direct Property Fund

  • Cromwell’s Direct Property Fund (DPF) ranked fifth spot in the ‘Offices and Shopping Centres’ category for 2024 and was awarded a 5.3 portfolio energy rating by NABERS.

Cromwell’s investment portfolio

  • Cromwell’s investment portfolio has been awarded the fourth spot in the ‘Offices and Shopping Centres’ category for 2024 with a 5.4 portfolio energy rating by NABERS.

This result reaffirms Cromwell’s continued commitment to sustainability across our business, and we commend everyone in the business who helped achieve this impressive result.

Now in its sixth year, the SPI includes 60 office and shopping centre portfolios, as well as covering public hospitals for the first time, with 133 Victoria Health assets included.

The index offers a unique, whole-of-portfolio view of actual performance across energy efficiency, water efficiency, waste management, indoor environment quality, and carbon neutrality.
