G2K wants rat­ing sys­tem for plumb­ing and ap­pli­ances

The Star (Jamaica) - - News -

Generation 2000 (G2K), the young pro­fes­sional af­fil­i­ate of the Ja­maica Labour Party (JLP), is call­ing on the Bureau of Stan­dards to de­velop lo­cal wa­ter­ef­fi­ciency stan­dards and rat­ings for plumb­ing and ap­pli­ances.

Stephen Ed­wards, pres­i­dent of G2K, said “…that stan­dard has to be de­vel­oped so that we can la­bel our prod­ucts based on water ef­fi­ciency, so that you arm

the con­sumer with the in­for­ma­tion to make the right choice that will not only be beneficial to the en­vi­ron­ment, but beneficial to their pock­ets as well”.

The call was made at the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s pol­icy fo­rum, ti­tled ‘Water Man­age­ment – A Part­ner­ship in Cli­mate Change Re­silience’, which was held at The Span­ish Court Ho­tel last Thurs­day.
