Chrysler BramptonCanada – The assembly plant in Ontario has been recognised for its sustainability achievements by the Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation (CIPEC). The Leadership Award was presented at the Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) Energy Summit 2014, which took place this month at Niagara Falls.

Brampton Assembly Plant (BAP) was the first automotive plant in Canada to achieve ISO 50001: 2011 Energy Management certification, thanks to initiatives such as automated lighting control, which alone saves around $110,000 in annual electricity costs. The facility also boasts an automated heating and ventilation management system and scheduler, which saves almost $2m in electricity and natural gas costs each year, while also reducing excess negative exhaust by 1.2m cu.ft per minute.
