Discover how Certification to ISO 50001: Energy Management can increase energy efficiency, reduce costs and improve energy performance. Also learn how organizations that have implemented energy management systems have reported tremendous energy savings of 10 to 20 per cent within the first five years of adherence.
Connect with us, the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), in this webinar, where we will present background information on ISO 50001, certification to the standard, as well as key benefits and incentives for the implementation of energy management systems and ISO 50001. We will also be joined by Jon Feldman of Ontario Power Authority (OPA), Kevin Wallace of BC Hydro, Paul W. Birkeland of Global Strategic Energy, and Bob Fraser of Natural Resources Canada, as they share their ISO 50001 experiences with you first hand.
