Coordination Between Sustainability and Energy Managers

Track 3: Energy Manager Summit

Wednesday, June 7 | 9:45 – 10:25 a.m.

Matthew Pekar, energy conservation specialist, Sikorsky Aircraft, United Technologies

Some conflict is inherent in the responsibilities and duties of sustainability and energy managers. However, the demands for collaboration and connectivity can be reinforced via guiding principles that lead to workable best practices.

United Technologies is actively reducing site-level energy by requiring facilities to meet greenhouse gas reduction targets.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How the model UTC employs leads to collaborative relationships among business units, EH&S leaders and site energy managers.
  • How to evaluate the effectiveness of energy management programs in terms of guiding corporate principles.
  • What it takes to assure a company simultaneously meets both its sustainability and energy management goals.
