The presentations will focus on key building types in the Pearson Eco-Business zone, including: warehouses, light industrial and office buildings. You should attend if you own or manage facilities that are over 50,000 square feet and if you fall within one of these categories:

  • Building Owners
  • Property Managers
  • Sustainability Officers
  • Facility Managers



Presentation #1: Mandatory Energy and Water Reporting and Benchmarking (EWRB) For Large Buildings
If you own, manage or represent a commercial or residential building that’s 100,000 square feet or larger, you may be required to report its energy and water use by July 1, 2019 under Ontario’s Energy and Water Reporting and Benchmarking (EWRB) initiative. By July 2020, you may be required to report on buildings over 50,000 square feet.

The Ontario Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines will provide an overview of the energy and water reporting requirement. Attendees can expect to learn how this initiative can help building owners in saving money and improving building performance.

Presentation #2: ISO 50001 Energy Management Certification for Commercial Buildings
Fred Khalichi from CWB Group will give a presentation about ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems, an internationally recognized standard which aims to improve the energy performance of organizations resulting in a reduction of energy consumption and costs.  He will provide a brief overview of the standard’s requirements, implementation, and similarities with ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems as well as ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems.  In addition, he will discuss the government incentive programs that are available including Natural Resource Canada’s (NRCan) ISO 50001 implementation financial assistance available to the commercial sector as well as US Department Of Energy’s (DOE) free online ISO 50001 Ready Navigator software tool that assists organizations in implementing the standard.
