The Green Mechanical Council and GreenPlumbersUSA recently announced a collaborative partnership to speed up the installation of green educational programs to the construction industry and more effectively communicate the plumbing and mechanical contracting industry's efficiency programs to utilities, businesses and consumers.
The Green Mechanical Council’s mission is to educate all contractors, field
technicians, and industry leaders in environmentally sound mechanical systems
for residential and commercial use. They currently offer 13 different
educational programs, covering everything from energy auditing to geothermal,
including the popular Green Awareness Certification Program, developed by the
Green Mechanical Council’s Founding Members, the United Association of Plumbers
(UA) and Pipe Fitters, HVAC Excellence and Ferris State University.
The GreenPlumbers® training and
accreditation program is open to all recognized plumbers and contractors. The
program is partnered with the EPA’s WaterSense program, the Alliance for Water
Efficiency, the California Center for Sustainable Energy, the California Urban
Water Conservation Council, and many more industry leaders in its mission of
bringing environmental training to plumbers. For more information, visitwww.greenplumbersusa.com.
