The Partners in Project Green Eco-Efficiency Program is your one-stop shop for reducing your energy, water and waste costs. If your company is looking to reduce its energy costs, increase its productivity and improve its environmental performance, you’ve come to the right place.
The program features three steps:
Step 1 – FREE Walk-Through Eco-Efficiency Review - Through Partners in Project Green, a pre-qualified professional consultant from the program roster will conduct a free walk-through review of your facility to identify opportunities for energy, water and waste reduction, and cost-savings.
Step 2 – Cost-Shared Detailed Eco-Efficiency Assessment - If you need to conduct a more detailed assessment of the energy, water or waste reduction opportunities identified in the FREE Walk-Through Eco-Efficiency Review, Partners in Project Green will facilitate a cost-shared audit of your facility to develop a plan and the business case to implement the cost-saving opportunities.
Step 3 – Implementation Assistance - To help you with financing the cost-saving opportunities identified, Partners in Project Green will assist by identifying and coordinating applications to financial assistance programs that can reduce the investment payback period.
Benefits for your business include:
- Reduced operating costs
- Improved productivity
- Increased competitiveness
- Limiting business risk
- Reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
Waste is bad for both environment and the economy. Reducing energy, water and other input costs in your facility means you send more product out the door, at a reduced cost, putting more profit in your pocket.
WHAT IS ECO-EFFICIENCY?
In short, eco-efficiency is the creation of more value with less impact.
Local examples of eco-efficiency include:
- Unilever Rexdale (Toronto) - has reduced energy costs by over $3.5 million since 1999, with the average project having a 6-month simple pay-back.
- Zellers Head Office (Brampton) - by changing lighting systems, installing demand controls and high-efficiency HVAC plants, Zellers realizes over $1.5 million a year in energy savings at its head office.
