Armstrong Limited Becomes a Environmental Leader
Armstrong Limited, a leading supplier of quality high efficiency HVAC and fluid handling equipment for residential, commercial and industrial applications, has been accepted as a “leader” of a government-run environmental group.
The Canadian federal government has accepted S.A. Armstrong Limited as a “leader” of the Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation (CIPEC). The program is part of the Natural Resources department. By voluntarily becoming a partner in this program, Armstrong is signalling to the industry that conserving energy is a priority for the organization.
Armstrong is focused on helping customers implement their sustainability strategies, but also consider it equally important to reduce the carbon footprint of our offices and manufacturing facilities around the world.
Armstrong offices in the UK have made many changes, leading to a reduction in waste; an increase in the amount of recycling; and a reduction in hydro consumption. Armstrong also continues to work with our suppliers to help reduce their environmental impact.
The Toronto manufacturing facility has replaced oil-based paint with water-based paint; reduced our consumption of paint and volatile compounds; and turned down the thermostat in a test water heater. In both the Toronto and Buffalo locations, the regular light bulbs have been replaced with energy saving bulbs.
For a recent conference hosted by Armstrong, we purchased $1,000 worth of carbon offset credits; encouraged participants to download PowerPoint presentations rather than printing hundreds of paper copies; and used locally grown produce for meals. Conference attendees stayed at a hotel in the heart of downtown Toronto, making it easy for attendees to walk or use transit to reach restaurants and other local attractions.
Since 1975, CIPEC has been helping companies improve their energy efficiency by providing energy management workshops, sector guidebooks, benchmarking studies and technical tools.
