Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency


One Planet Living Principle - Zero Carbon: Making buildings energy efficient and delivering all energy with renewable technologies.



We can all be part of the solution by improving the energy efficiency of our homes and workplaces. Whether we are heating, cooling, lighting, building, retrofitting, renovating or just washing the dishes, we can all use energy more wisely and select energy efficient products to work for us. Minor adjustments to our behaviour and lifestyle choices can reap significant benefits for our household and business budgets as well as for the environment.
