ENERGY STAR® Canada Recognizes Leaders in Energy Efficiency

LDS Energy Star 400

June 7, 2022

Promoting energy efficiency in our homes, products, businesses and industries is central to helping Canadians build a healthier, more resilient energy future while fighting climate change. By embracing new technologies, building materials, and innovative financing models, we are not only enabling the next generation of skilled energy efficiency workers but also accelerating our transition to net-zero by 2050.  

Today, the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Natural Resources, congratulated the winners of the 2022 ENERGY STAR Canada Awards for their remarkable contributions in promoting the most energy-efficient products, new homes and buildings — inspiring Canadians to regularly take action on climate change.

ENERGY STAR Canada is a voluntary partnership between the Government of Canada and more than 1,000 organizations working to use our natural resources more wisely in order to make high efficiency products readily available and visible to Canadians. The ENERGY STAR symbol is the internationally recognized and trusted mark of high efficiency, and behind every label is a product, home, building or industrial facility that is certified to use less energy, reducing emissions that contribute to climate change. In 2021 alone, ENERGY STAR certified products saved enough energy to power over 402K homes for a year.

With Canada’s goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 in mind, this year’s award winners have demonstrated innovative climate action at the local level, providing solutions to building a cleaner, greener future for Canadians.

The following businesses and organizations were recognized as ambassadors of energy efficiency and as examples of the value of investing in smart energy choices. They have distinguished themselves with their efforts to promote the most energy-efficient products, homes and buildings:
