Partnership Criteria – ZERO Bills Alliance

Partnership Criteria

The importance of high standards

As a global alliance, ZERO Bills Alliance is highly selective when appointing independent firms, contractors or installers as members of the network. Although membership is completely FREE every firm interested in joining us is required to meet strict membership criteria and to pass our thorough due diligence review process aimed at protecting the good reputation of the alliance and member firms as well as to maintain the high standards of our network and member firms.

Existing members will also be subjected to ongoing, informal reviews from time to time in order to maintain the standards and confirmation of their ability to meet these criteria.

Our due diligence process consists of:

  • An initial membership inquiry form
  • Discussions with the longest established members in the country, if applicable
  • A detailed application form to assess if key membership criteria are met
  • Random on-site visit may be conducted by a ZERO Bills Alliance representative or appointed partner to review working practices
  • Membership processing time varies depending on the complexity of the application, but typically the Board will be able to either make a decision or give initial feedback on the application within 1 to 2 weeks of receiving the application form. Partnership Criteria
