André Lemay started his mining sector career in electrical construction and maintenance departments, and then moved into energy management and energy related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as part of the then-new Climate Change Initiative. His work revolved extensively in the development of energy forecasts and consumption algorithms, and he also focused on the continued development, support and implementation of companywide energy efficiency programs to further reduce consumption and cost and to minimize the related greenhouse gas GHG emissions.
Over the years, he has become known for providing leadership, knowledge and guidance to people from the plant floor to the executive offices, to other mining or related companies, all levels of governments, non-government organizations, associations and regulatory bodies.
Volunteering with CIM is an important part of his career and he has worked in many roles. He is currently an executive member of CIM’s Maintenance Engineering and Reliability Society (MER).
