By Canadian Manufacturing
OTTAWA — On May 19, Seamus O’Regan Jr., Minister of Natural Resources, congratulated the winners of the 2021 ENERGY STAR Canada Awards for their contributions in promoting the most energy-efficient products, new homes and buildings.
ENERGY STAR Canada is a voluntary partnership between the government and more than 1,000 organizations working to use our natural resources more wisely through greater energy efficiency. Behind each ENERGY STAR label is a product, home, building or industrial facility that is certified to use less energy, reducing emissions that contribute to climate change.
Global momentum to improve energy efficiency is increasing and Canada has the opportunity to lead by providing local solutions. It drives economic growth and creates local trades’ jobs for installers and manufacturers of energy efficient equipment like windows, smart thermostats and appliances.
