The food distributor Sysco will renew its contract with Cascade Energy, building on a partnership established nine years ago to reduce energy use at Sysco facilities.
In 2005 under Sysco’s direction, Cascade Energy developed a multifaceted, company-wide energy management program aimed at reducing energy use at 110 Sysco food distribution warehouses. By the end of 2014, Sysco had reduced its distribution center energy intensity by 41 percent. In addition to energy management services, Cascade also provides Sysco with Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) support for data reporting.
To achieve additional savings, Cascade’s energy management software system Sensei will be implemented to track facility and companywide energy performance. The new, multi-year scope of work ranges from developing predictive energy models and delivering tune-ups to continued support for Sysco’s annual CDP reporting of energy, water and other carbon constituents.
