Hypocrisy is cheaper:

The Australian federal government’s Department of Climate Change … has told a parliamentary committee that its Canberra headquarters achieved only a 2½-star rating on the five-star National Australian Built Environment Rating System and did not comply with the government’s policy on energy efficiency in its own operations.

As a result, it is seeking approval to spend $20.5 million fitting out a new building which will have ‘’state of the art’’ green features …

Once that’s done, they can bully everyone else into five-star ratings. That is, every one else who doesn’t have taxpayers to cough up the millions needed.
