August 23, 2021 – Through the Industrial Energy Management Program, Natural Resources Canada is investing $40,000 in Kruger Products so it can improve energy efficiency, and reduce energy costs and GHG emissions at its Crabtree plant in Quebec.
This funding will help Kruger to take the necessary steps to certify this plant to ISO 50001 “Energy management”, which means it will commit to reducing its impact on the environment, conserving energy resources and improving its performance through the efficient management of all forms of energy.
“We are grateful for Natural Resources Canada’s support of this initiative that fits perfectly into our overall sustainability strategy, which is a priority not only for Kruger Products, but for all Kruger operations in North America,” said Michel Manseau, Kruger Products, adding, “By continually improving our energy efficiency, we will make our production process even more responsible and respectful of the environment, consumers and our communities.”
According to NRCan, the average ISO 50001-certified facility will experience a cumulative energy performance improvement of almost 3% in the first two years of certification.
This funding supplements the investments made by Kruger Products to obtain ISO 50001 certification, for a total combined investment of $660,000.
