Date: Tuesday, February 23, 2016

Topic: Sustainability Through Reliability Initiatives at Toronto Pearson Airport

Clarence Walters, Manager, Mechanical Systems
Greater Toronto Airport Authority

Over the last few years at Toronto Pearson Airport there has been a significant increase in the number of travellers and subsequently a number of new retail food establishments have been added to cater and meet the demand. This webcast will highlight the challenges of this growth and the increased strain it put on the airport’s mechanical systems infrastructure causing service interruptions which affected travellers, tenants and internal operations. See the process Toronto Pearson underwent to assess and diagnose the problems using a Root Cause Analysis (RCA) model, and how it developed and implemented solutions.  Participants will see that the reliability initiative was not only able to identify and assist us with technology improvements but helped Toronto Pearson develop new internal standards which have propelled us to a new phase in “water sustainability”. Toronto Pearson was the first airport in North America to receive the ISO 14001 certification. These initiatives will help us to meet our commitments to the environment and sustainability into the future.
