Energy efficiency in industry strengthens competitiveness, lowers costs, maximizes profits and promotes a more sustainable environment. Promoting and rewarding energy-efficient practices are key components of Canada’s approach in transitioning to a clean-energy future.
MP Mary Ng recently announced a $40,000 investment to Miller Paving Limited for an ISO 50001 energy management systems standard that reduced their energy consumption and improved environmental performance. With funding from Natural Resources Canada and facilitated by the Canadian Industry Partnership for Energy Conservation, the project enabled Miller Paving to improve its energy performance, lower energy and carbon emissions and reduce operating costs.
“We believe in the efficient and responsible use of energy, and the practices and processes of ISO 50001 have allowed us to look at our business in a way we’ve not been able to in the past.” said Ryan Essex, Miller Paving vice-president. “Deployment of what we’ve learned from this program, throughout our organization, will engage our employees in saving energy at all levels — at home and at work — while increasing our competitiveness for our business in the markets in which we operate.”
Miller Paving Limited is located in Markham, at 505 Miller Ave.
