What is BASIX?

The Building Sustainability Index (BASIX) is a forward-thinking environmental planning policy from the NSW Government. This initiative, launched in 2005, aims to reduce the environmental footprint of residential constructions.

BASIX's Primary Goals
BASIX revolves around two pivotal sustainability objectives:

  1. Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction: BASIX homes are designed to produce up to 40% fewer greenhouse gases than average pre-BASIX homes.
  2. Water Conservation with Water Tanks: A cornerstone of the BASIX policy is water conservation. New homes in NSW under BASIX are required to use up to 40% less water than their pre-BASIX counterparts. A key strategy for homeowners to meet this requirement is the integration of water tanks.

Why Water Tanks Are Essential for BASIX Compliance
Beyond the environmental benefits, water tanks provide a tangible solution for homeowners looking to achieve BASIX's water-saving target. Given the increasing periods of drought and water scarcity, investing in a water tank is not only an eco-friendly decision but also a practical one. Our range of water tanks offers both functionality and aesthetic appeal, making them a popular choice for modern sustainable homes.

BASIX and Its Broader Impact
In its years of implementation, BASIX has:

  • Guided NSW households to save an estimated 281 billion litres of drinking water, a testament to initiatives like water tank installation.

Global and Local Synergy
BASIX's mission complements global environmental agendas, including the United Nations Paris Agreement on climate change. With the NSW Government’s Climate Change Policy Framework, BASIX initiatives align with global solutions, emphasizing the importance of local actions like individual home water tanks.

A Homeowner's Guide to BASIX and Water Tanks
For potential homeowners in NSW, understanding BASIX and the vital role of water tanks is crucial. Whether you're building a new home or renovating, incorporating a water tank will ensure your home's sustainability, compliance, and long-term value.

In essence, BASIX transcends mere regulations. It's a commitment to a greener future. And as a leading provider of water tanks, we're here to help you navigate this sustainable journey, ensuring a better tomorrow for our environment and communities.
