RPS consultant is keynote speaker at CSR seminar


A recent seminar on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) held in Castlemartyr, Co Cork was hosted by East Cork Area Development.

Representatives from a number of large corporations including - Janssen, FMC, GE Healthcare and Gilead Sciences - attended to gain an insight into the benefits of I.S.393 Energy Management Systems. Dr. Elmer Morrissey, an energy engineer from the RPS Curraheen office was a keynote speaker.

Outlining how I.S.393 can be used to formalise an energy management system within a corporate structure, Dr. Morrissey illustrated how this system can help reduce environmental impacts and mitigate energy usage, whilst allowing companies to operate more efficiently and reduce operational costs.

This also provided the companies with a clear overview on how this system contributes to their corporate and social responsibilities. The seminar generated considerable local interest - receiving coverage in the Business section of both The Examiner and The Evening Echo.

A highly-qualified civil and energy engineer, Dr. Morrissey has in-depth building services and energy engineering experience. He has worked on energy conservation projects within the industrial and commercial sectors and has presented several lectures at University College Cork on the topic of Building Information Models and building energy simulation in the commercial industry.
