Enviro-Stewards Design for Environment client Veriform featured in Globe & Mail Article

As outlined in the article, Veriform’s internal initiatives succeeded in reducing their heating bill by 91%.  Veriform subsequently retained Enviro-Stewards to assess the performance of Veriform`s downdraft cutting table, which they operate onsite and also sell under the product name VeriCUT.

Enviro-Stewards` assessment identified practical opportunities to reduce the cutting table`s energy consumption by 90% with a 2.3 year payback (43% return on investment).  These changes will also provide market advantage for the VeriCUT downdraft table product as it will be less expensive to operate, have a smaller environmental footprint and reduce worker and community exposure to dust emissions (i.e. improved economic, environmental, and social sustainability).
