Sustainability

Living up to our responsibilities – using sustainable, energy-efficient technologies that preserve Australia’s natural resources

Are you serious about using sustainable technology in your business? Really?

If you want to work with a commercial plumbing services company that’s deadly serious about preserving Australia’s precious resources, talk to us. Our actions speak for us, and you only have to talk to some of our customers in the Melbourne CBD to find out why.

We have adopted two distinct initiatives in our efforts to promote sustainability. Firstly, we use renewable technologies wherever possible, helping our customers to save money while doing their bit for the environment. Secondly, we recommend energy-efficient products wherever it’s right for the customer (and more often than not, it is).

If you have fewer than 50 employees, you’re eligible for the Living Victoria Water Rebate Program and you may be entitled to a refund of up to $2,000 to improve water efficiency. We’ll advise you what expenditure qualifies and we’ll also help you to participate in state-wide water-saving initiatives. Most businesses can get involved, and there are a number of industry-specific schemes for heavy water users like laundries.

Save money or reduce your energy or water usage

We’re proud of our Green Plumbers® accreditation, and you can be confident that whatever advice we give you, it’ll be with your interests in mind. Not every business has the opportunity to make major changes, and we won’t recommend anything that won’t either save you money or reduce your energy or water usage – or both!

Here are just a few of the sustainability projects we’ve worked on:

  • Solar hot water systems
  • Greywater and blackwater recycling
  • Rainwater harvesting systems
  • Rain-monitoring systems
  • Water management systems and water-saving devices
  • Heat pumps
  • Waterless urinals
  • Irrigation systems
  • Victoria state WaterMAP program for non-residential water users
  • Assistance with government rebates
