Green Plumber Programme
Being a responsible and environmentally conscious business in the Auckland market we plan to become part of the innovative GreenPlumbers® programme when it begins rolling out in New Zealand in 2009.
The GreenPlumbers® initiative and brand, is an Australian concept (see their website below for more info), that is start being rolled out in New Zealand by the Master Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers Board.
The intention is that plumbers completing the training, courses adnd workshops will be accredited GreenPlumbers®. Ten years of investment by the Australians, will be behind the New Zealand invitiative. “Completing the GreenPlumbers® Environmental Solutions course helps plumbers understand their roles in the relation to environmental and public health, and provide, and provide their own customers with up-to-date information and advice on the latest technology and energy saving appliances, practical appliance and installation knowledge, environmental impacts of plumbing services, appliances and household practices, consumer information, energy/water/cost savings (short-term and long-term cost comparisons and environmental benefits).

We also chose to buy New Zealand made products where possible and support our suppliers who are concscous of energy efficiency and sustainability, for example, Bosch, Parex Industies Ltd, Rinnai, Feltonmix etc.
