Chris initiated the development of the Partners in Project Green Energy Leaders Consortium - a group of businesses from around Toronto Pearson with a commitment to working together to reduce their energy consumption.
Levering funding from various funding partners, Chris worked with his team and a consultant to develop the Energy Leaders Consortium. The program provided a work plan for participating companies to identify, target and reduce their energy consumption. Leveraging ongoing mentoring, regular training sessions and the use of various energy monitoring technologies, participants developed their reduction plans and worked with each other to drive savings in their respective businesses.
The Energy Leaders Consortium included the following companies:
- Cott Beverages
- Greater Toronto Airports Authority
- Husky Injection Molding
- Janes Family Foods
- Lincoln Electric
- Magellan Aerospace
- Pratt and Whitney
- Weston Bakeries
In just its first year, the participating companies were able to collectively reduce energy consumption by 11.1 eGWh for a total savings of 1.15 million dollars.
