We want to help people live not only a ‘zero-emission’ lifestyle but to take the further step towards a ‘minus-emission’ lifestyle. This means shifting from a wasteful society that consumes far more than it gives back to one that actually returns more to the earth than it takes and even begins to repair the damage already done.
Social Responsibility Policy
It is the policy of our company to:
- educate and raise awareness of environmentally-friendly lifestyles
- source everything we sell from suppliers with excellent environmental and labour standards
- use products that not only have zero-impact on the earth, but actually work to heal the planet

FIRST stands for: Far Infrared Sustainable Thermal System. This is the core of the sustainable living solutions system. Using made-in-Japan technology, FIRST is a heating and cooling system that maintains a comfortable temperature in your home in a low-cost, environmentally-friendly way. With no forced-air, there is no need to position furniture away from ducts, no cold breeze, and the same temperature is maintained in every room in all seasons.
FIRST was certified by JIS (Japan Industrial Standard) after two years of research and trials. It is being used by major Japanese builders with substantial cost savings for new construction, and homeowners and businesses are enjoying greatly-reduced energy bills. Read more about FIRST here.
Solar Energy Panels
Our model home is fitted with 9 x 175 watt Sharp solar panels rated at 1.6 kilowatt hours of green electricity connected to a Xantrax invertor. On a yearly basis in Richmond, our system will produce on average of 1.83MW. Please click here to see live monitoring of the system power generation.
Installed on the peak of our model home roof is a 600 watt Southwest Windpower turbine. When it comes to small wind systems, no company is better positioned than Southwest Windpower. This Air Breeze AIR X generator is designed for years of maintenance-free operation and is designed for low wind speed locations providing added green power generation for our Eco home.
When a heat pump is added to work in concert with the sustainable living solutions system, operating costs drop and energy efficiency increases. Over the longer term, substantial cost savings are realized.
