Energy Conservation and Waste Avoidance: A Lucrative Method for Manufacturers (Webinar)



The Case For a Systemic Approach to Resource Conservation

Among the many priorities of Canada’s top manufacturers and companies is the need to maintain profits with less available capital and to make significant inroads in reducing their environmental footprints for corporate responsibility and green marketing reasons. If a company does not first focus on conservation and waste reduction then these two priorities contrast each other. With cap and trade and/or carbon pricing soon to be implemented across much of the country, and new federal commitments towards the Paris Climate Treaty, the companies that most effectively reduce their environmental footprint through conservation and waste reduction will be those that succeed in a low-carbon economy.

In this webinar, Darrin Kinsey will share his experiences working with large companies and manufacturers to reduce their environmental footprint without substantial investment.

This webinar course is designed for environmental professionals who need new up-to-date knowledge to fulfill job requirements, or are interested in trends, drivers and how it impacts bottom line.

This may include:

  • Senior management
  • Consultants
  • Auditors
  • Technicians
  • Project managers
  • Implementers
  • Operators


During this 60 minute webinar, get guidance on the most cost effective sustainability pursuits for your company.

You’ll also:

  • Understand differences between conservation/waste reduction and renewable resources
  • Understand how to look at equipment and systems in a systemic manner
  • Gain exposure to environmental and facility auditing


When manufacturers and large companies pursue Sustainability targets and goals the prevailing expectation is typically that it will require substantial investment and / or will be highly reliant on the use of renewable energy. When this is the focus it often results in ignoring a far more lucrative and effective method to decrease a typical facility’s environmental footprint and that is through conservation and waste avoidance. Until the wasting of resources is addressed, renewables, co-gen, high efficiency equipment and other green technologies will facilitate the wasting of resources more efficiently and the full potential financial impact from a company’s prudent environmental goals will never be realized.
