Often it falls to the energy manager to drive progress towards a company’s sustainability goals. In these cases, energy managers need to learn the language of sustainability and methods to align their core responsibilities with a company’s broader sustainability strategy. Thankfully, many of the tools and strategies that energy managers use to create value can be leveraged to help companies achieve their sustainability goals.

The most successful companies have energy managers who play an important role in designing and implementing a corporate sustainability strategy.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Which strategies for energy managers align their work with corporate sustainability goals.
  • How strategies for sustainability managers can leverage energy procurement, demand-side management, clean energy finance, commissioning, and other tools of the energy management trade.
  • What best practices companies are using to align energy management and sustainability to create value.
