05 Jun #053: Shayne La Combre | PICAC and World Plumbing Council
Shayne La Combre is the CEO of the Plumbing Industry Climate Action Centre (PICAC) and the current Chair of the World Plumbing Council.
Shayne has been a Board Member at PICAC since 2011 and has been instrumental in the continuous expansion of the training organisation which now has several facilities throughout Australia including their newest campus located at Narre Warren in Victoria, Australia.
The site will be the first net zero energy education and research facility in Victoria. The training facility, designed for the plumbing industry, will generate all energy required to support the operation of the building on site through the incorporation of several renewable energy technologies.
Prior to his positions at PICAC Shayne was Director of Plumbing at Victoria’s plumbing industry regulator, the Plumbing Industry Commission (now the Victorian Building Authority). In 2011, Shayne was elected to the Board of the World Plumbing Council, served as deputy chair from 2013-2016 and is the current Chair.
