Article

Water and energy systems long have been intrinsically intertwined, given electricity's entrenchment as one of a water or wastewater utility's biggest expenditures.

Water Utilities Urged to Exploit Data, Use Less Guesswork

Data is driving the discussion in the water industry
Article

In the water industry, data is driving the discussion. To understand what this means requires a story about motor oil. 

For decades, car manufacturers recommended that vehicles have their engine oil changed at least every 3,000 miles without fail. This was never proven practical, given that such decisions should be based on individual driving style, the conditions and climate – even the type of oil used.

Scotiabank Addresses Climate Change by Establishing an Internal Carbon Price

Blog

As part of our commitment to the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition, we implemented an internal carbon price in 2018. After consultations with external experts and a thorough peer review, we established an internal tax of CAD$15 per tonne of CO2 for our global Scope 1 and 2 emissions.
