APP Plumbing & Heating is committed to supporting sustainability initiatives and doing what it can to support the governments pledge to decrease emissions by 80% by 2050. Essentially, we need need to replace the high carbon fossil fuels that we currently use to heat our homes with low carbon fuels. This will require a big change to the U.K. heating industry and for consumers of heating products.

Policy Connect

APP Plumbing & Heating has joined Policy and Carbon Connect in order to understand what is the future for the gas network and boilers. Their mission is to lead the development of new policy ideas through evidence and collaboration. The Sustainability team at Policy Connect works closely with Parliamentary Groups for Climate Change and Sustainable Resources and Carbon Connect, the Sustainable Resource Forum and the Westminster Sustainable Business Forum. The work of the team is aimed towards achieving a resource efficient economy and resilient communities, supporting the delivery of zero net carbon emissions by 2050.

The future of the gas network and how we burn fuel to heat our homes is in discussion now. As a key supplier within the market, APP Plumbing & Heating has a duty to try and understand how we can all reduce our carbon footprint. We are also highly aware of our impact as a business, and want to make sure we can do our bit to help achieve this target. Any change of gas type or appliance that heats our homes is really important to us and our customers and we want to make sure that we are informed in the best ways we can be. In order to offer you unbiased information we have joined up with Policy Connect and Carbon Connect to gain evidence and collaborate with the industry to tackle this target. We will be using this data to help our staff and customers to understand the transition and ideas that are being researched and policies that are going to come in.

World Land Trust

APP Plumbing & Heating is conscious of its impact on the environment and the market that it supplies and wants to do more to make sure it is doing everything it can. With this in mind, APP Plumbing & Heating at the start of 2021 has pledged to save hundreds’ of acres of threatened habitat and wildlife using the World Land Trust to achieve this. They are an amazing conservation charity that works to save the land before it is too late and allows the local communities to benefit by keeping it unchanged and preserved for the future.

The World Land Trust (WLT) is an international conservation charity which saves, protects, and restores the world’s most biologically significant and threatened habitats. Through a network of partner organisations around the world, who engage support and commitment among their local communities, WLT funds the creation of reserves and biological corridors to provide permanent protection for wildlife. WLT has been saving land to save species for more than 30 years, and today their work to protect existing tropical forest habitat, and in doing so lock up carbon and address climate change, is more important than ever to save what remains of these vital ecosystems.

We have donated towards WLT’s Buy an Acre programme and purchased over 150 acres of land in Argentina to help save habitat for wildlife. To date, the WLT has saved over 774,000 acres of land and protected millions of animals. This is just part of a series of initiatives that APP Plumbing & Heating will be undertaking in 2021 to be a much less impactful business.
