Environmental Sustainability Supplier Assessments
With increasing questions from your customers and the public on your environmental or carbon footprint – and the pressure to reduce it – we can help develop a corporate response in a way that is comprehensive and professional, but practical and cost-effective to your operation.
We can review and assess environmental sustainability programs, such as environmental management, water conservation, and energy efficiency with a format that can result in a template and “scorecard” assessment rating.
Our engineering specialists provide engineering solutions that are innovative, cost-effective, and tailored to our clients’ needs. Detailed engineering studies investigating air, odour, water, waste, or energy issues are often a result of compliance issues, complaints, or the opportunity to save money.
Our services include:
We work hard to meet the day-to-day operating needs of operations management with creative, cost-effective solutions. Our approach begins with a thorough assessment of equipment and procedures to ensure you are getting the most out of existing facilities.

We understand the relationship between the production process and energy efficiency, and we specialize in providing innovative, cost-effective solutions. Energy conservation must be integrated with the business and operations of the company on a practical basis if solutions are to be successful.
Corporate Energy Management Strategies
We provide corporate energy strategy support including business analysis, technical feasibility studies, and climate change actions. Our programs include:
Demand Side Management
GHG and Carbon Footprint
Alternate and Renewable Energy
We have the ability to complete facility-wide energy assessments, as well as targeted feasibility studies. In every project, we look for both energy savings and production efficiencies which translate into lower energy per unit cost.
With every assessment, we offer our proprietary software program, E2 Action, to help you continue to track energy consumption. E2 Action is an easy-to-use tool that tracks energy consumption with production to determine a valuable calculation on energy efficiency.
We offer complete energy audits and evaluations of energy use and efficiency opportunities for both electrical and fuel-based savings (natural gas, fuel oils and alternative fuels) including:
Design/Build Energy Upgrades
Scoping and assessment of implementation requirements for energy upgrades including conceptual design and capital requirements.
Monitoring and Targeting (M&T)
We realize it’s often difficult to visualize energy consumption unless it’s metered. For that reason, we offer the turnkey ability to design an M&T program that helps you actually see energy consumption. Then we install the equipment, commission the system, and provide software to manage the data to help you to make changes to save money.
Examples of M&T programs include:
We understand occupational health & safety is extremely important for both businesses and their employees. Our services include:
Occupational Health and Safety audits conducted to assess compliance with regulatory requirements, standards and codes of practice.
Employee exposure assessments conducted in accordance with regulations (designated substances) and with recognized standards including NIOSH and OSHA.
Noise exposure monitoring and community noise impact studies conducted in accordance with legislation.
Industrial hygiene training programs offered on a variety of topics including Hazard Communication (WHMIS), Job Hazard Evaluations and Exposure Monitoring.
Development of control programs to reduce employee exposure to toxic chemicals through all aspects of exposure control, including ventilation equipment, use of protective equipment and respirators, work practices, and employee training.
