David Heeney, CEO, Sustainability consultantDavid Heeney has done management consulting in energy and environment policy, management systems and technology assessment since 1978 both in Canada and abroad. One of his distinctive capabilities is to quickly see through a morass and identify the central kernel.

David’s consulting projects have covered a wide range of energy and environment issues, including demand side management (DSM), climate change, emissions reductions, and environmental management and information systems. He has done extensive work for both public, private and third sector clients in energy efficiency programs, life-cycle assessment, performance indicators (in particular sustainability indicators), full-cost accounting, and the development and use of economic instruments to achieve goals such as the virtual elimination of toxics. He has developed innovative strategic planning, computer modeling and communications and workflow management tools to assist decision-makers to deal with the energy, environment and business challenges they confront.

Recently, David has been working primarily on energy efficiency and climate change issues, including assisting a number of gas and electric utilities with planning and regulatory issues related to their DSM programs, working on strategic planning for climate change with experts in Latin America, and developing markets for a start-up firm focusing on harnessing the power, resources, initiative, and vision of profitable corporate enterprises to meet the needs of the world’s emerging markets.

Fundamental to the approach he brings to each project is a systems perspective, scientific rigour and business acumen. Always on the leading edge, David ensures that IndEco is on top of sustainability trends and emerging issues.
