CONTENTS ISSUE 06/16

Welcome to the latest issue of Sustainable Business Magazine Sustainable Business Magazine aims to spread awareness of the values of sustainability, as well as the brilliant ways in which organizations continue to meet challenges and champion corporate social responsibility. We are proud to present the second installment of our ‘District Energy’ series in partnership with the International District Energy Association (IDEA). Each installment of the ‘District Energy’ series will feature detailed profiles of companies demonstrating state-ofthe-art best practices in district energy across North America. For this installment we spoke to Scott Clark, Vice President and General Manager at Burns & McDonnell, about providing reliable, crisis-proof energy to some of the U.S.’s most critical facilities. We also spoke to Ben Erpelding, P.E., Chief Technology Officer at Optimum Energy, about the company’s unique energy management platform and how it has revolutionized the University of Texas at Austin. As always the series is prefaced by a foreword from Rob Thornton, President and CEO of the International District Energy Association (IDEA). Continuing our focus on energy, we spoke to Nadeem Afghan, President and CEO of BIOFerm™ Energy Systems, about customized solutions, innovation, and proving maximum value to customers. Our ‘Sustainable Campuses’ series in partnership with AASHE celebrates how universities continue to develop and operate sustainably, as well as the role they’re taking in educating students and the wider public about sustainability. The series is prefaced by a foreword from AASHE’s Executive Director Meghan Fay Zahniser. For the latest installment we spoke to Paul Leitch, Director of Sustainability at the University of Toronto, about energy savings, waste reduction, and getting the word out on a campus the size of a city. To continue our focus on sustainability in the Caribbean we spoke to Sophia Lowe, Corporate Communications and Public Affairs Manager at Caribbean Cement Company, Jamaica, about locally-sourced raw materials, improving efficiency, and community investment programs. We also spoke to Daniel Ravotti, Managing Director of St. Vincent Shipyard, about restoration, repair, and fresh approaches to old problems. Details of upcoming sustainability events can be found on our events calendar.
