Global Wood Concepts Ltd.: M134-32/9-2016E-PDF

Toronto furniture manufacturer first in Canada to earn ISO 50001 certification.

"For Global Wood Concepts Ltd. in Toronto, Ontario, becoming certified in the ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems standard in 2015 was the logical next step in the company’s evolution as an energy saver. By 2014, Global had many successful energy efficiency projects to its credit and had a firm foundation in becoming ISO certified (it had already achieved 9001 [quality management] and 14001 [environmental management] certification). Meanwhile, Canada continued to lag behind most other countries for productivity in this sector, which motivated Global Wood Concepts to use ISO 50001 as one important way to remain competitive. The company’s energy reductions for 2014–2015 – the years in which it began to implement ISO 50001 – totalled 234,688 kilowatt-hours (kWh) or $37,546 in financial savings"--Overview, p. 2.
