July 10, 2014 – Metrolinx—the primary provider of public transportation throughout Ontario’s Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area—has discovered that an active, organizational commitment to energy excellence can result in significant financial and environmental benefits.
The agency’s GO Transit division alone carries 65 million passengers per year while serving a population of over seven million people. Metrolinx has begun to reap significant savings by implementing sustained energy management practices throughout the organization.
The philosophy has been integrated throughout the organization, led by operations and supported by accounting, innovation and other departments—including senior management and the board. Each department understands it must play a role in the continued success of the organization’s journey to energy excellence. Metrolinx understands energy excellence is a continuing process requiring ongoing focus and adjustments due to changing environmental, market and energy pricing conditions.
