This team of leading companies from the Pearson Eco-Business Zone already excels in energy efficiency, and their wish is to move even further by instilling effective energy management practices throughout their organizations so that they can yield sustained savings, year after year.

The main purpose of the consortium is to give these organizations the opportunity to learn how to further reduce their energy costs through both expert facilitation as well as a forum that allows them to meet and exchange ideas with other consortium members.
 
The goal is for these companies to adopt models for continuous improvement in energy management. Leading the group is 360 Energy; it will provide a management process that will allow members to embed energy management throughout the company so they can continue their “Journey to Energy Excellence.”
 
“Utilizing the tools and techniques learned in the consortium, participants are expected to achieve five per cent energy savings within the first year by integrating energy management throughout their organization, using no cost, low cost and some capital expenditures,” says 360 Energy president & CEO David Arkell.
