PlumbSmarter Energy And Water Saving

Victoria’s 20,000 plumbers, manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers now have an opportunity to help shape the industry’s future by saving Victoria’s water and energy. PlumbSmarter – which can be viewed at the www.pic.vic.gov.au feedback website – which will help the plumbing industry become more sustainable.

The site allows plumbers to suggest water and energy saving ideas, share experiences with poor water or energy usage, and provide feedback on current sustainability thinking.

“Victorian plumbers are ideally placed to identify opportunities to save water and energy and make the industry more sustainable, as they play a pivotal role in the installation and maintenance of Victoria’s water and energy systems,” said Mr Shayne La Combre, General Manager, Plumbing Industry Commission.

“We want to hear about the experiences and ideas of as many plumbers as possible, to help us identify exactly how the plumbing industry can strengthen its role in helping Victoria save water and energy,” he said.

All plumbers are encouraged to write feedback when they visit the website. All contributions will be reviewed and the most viable saving opportunities will be discussed at a series of industry-government roundtable sessions. The outcomes will then be presented at an industry-government conference to agree on the next steps the plumbing industry will take to drive the rapid implementation of more sustainable plumbing practices in Victoria.

PlumbSmarter is a collaborative project led by the Plumbing Industry Advisory Council and Plumbing Industry Commission and supported by EPA Victoria, Sustainability Victoria, the Department of Sustainability and Environment and Victorian water authorities.
