September 26, 2016 – Toronto Hydro’s president and CEO, Anthony Haines, has been named to the 2017 Clean16 group of leaders, which acknowledges “those who have helped advance the cause of sustainability and clean capitalism in Canada.”
The award was handed out last week at a ceremony in Toronto by the Delta Management Group, a sustainability and cleantech search firm.
“I’m honoured to be part of a great group of leaders. At Toronto Hydro, we’ve been very supportive of new innovation that can help us become a more sustainable organization, and this is recognition that the work we’re doing is valuable,” said Haines.
Delta Management Group created the Clean16 awards to “recognize remarkable and inspiring leaders, but also to attempt to connect those leaders in order to bridge gaps, and build connections that might not otherwise occur”.
The firm notes that, under Haines’ leadership, Toronto Hydro has delivered 24% of the province’s conservation and demand management (CDM) focused savings, connected 11,000 solar projects and supported emerging technologies such as Hydrostor, a underwater compressed-air energy storage system and eCamion, which uses pole top energy storage.
“The 2017 Clean16 are truly the leaders of the leaders in sustainability in Canada,” said Gavin Pitchford, chief talent officer at Delta Management Group. “The competition for the top spot this year in every instance left us with many great choices—and to be selected from amongst such a strong group of peers is truly a testament to the contribution Anthony Haines has made to helping make Canada more sustainable for all Canadians.”
