Alexis Esseltine Scoon

Sustainability Manager, Keilhauer

In less than 3 years, Alexis built Keilhauer’s sustainability program. She uniquely partnered with competitors to divert 10 tons of textile annually, and spearheaded an extensive waste program that reduced waste by 27% in two years and led the company to achieve 0 waste to landfill through a waste-to-energy partnership. She increased renewable electricity use to 100%, and identified over 500,000 kW/h in annual energy savings.  By instituting a Design for Environment (DfE) methodology that identifies 85% of lifecycle impacts in the design phase and enables mitigation prior to manufacture, Alexis drove the introduction of FSC certified wood in manufacturing. These efforts led Keilhauer to a Canada’s Greenest Employer award in 2013.
