A half-day seminar co-sponsored by the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce and Simplify ISO, a firm with extensive experience in helping organizations of all types developing services held to a world standard, attracted several local energy users who now have a path for improvement.
The event, which took place on Monday, was publicized in the Chamber’s newsletter and elsewhere, with Shirley de Silva, the Chamber’s president and CEO, seeing a future for more events of this type in the Chamber’s future.
“Our value proposition for members includes underscoring how the Chamber is building relevance,” said de Silva.
A key speaker at the seminar was Donna Arts (pictured centre), representing Natural Resources Canada, who outlined a rebate program for eligible companies who become certified to the ISO 50001 Energy Management Standard, an area where Jim Moran (pictured left), president of Simplify ISO, can assist companies.
Representatives from Bluewater Power as well as heavy users of energy attended the event, which was free of charge to Chamber members.
