TrustBIX Inc. Advances Its ESG Intiative with Sunterra as Its First Client for BuildSense Energy Management Solutions

Edmonton, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - April 22, 2021) - TrustBIX Inc. (TSXV: TBIX) ("TrustBIX" or the "Company") is very pleased to announce that the Sunterra Group ("Sunterra") is its first client for the BuildSense® suite of energy management solutions.

The BuildSense suite of solutions is offered in three discrete solutions as Build Aware, Build Sight, and Build Sense, and gives customers progressively deeper insight into energy consumption and sustainability management in their business operations. TrustBIX previously announced on December 7, 2020 that it signed a value-added reseller agreement with Green Metrics Technologies Ltd. ("Green Metrics") for the BuildSense® suite for the agri-food sector.

TrustBIX has already completed a Build Aware review of various Sunterra production, processing, and retail locations in Alberta. With Build Aware, historical energy consumption at target locations was examined, and sites that may benefit from a deeper on-site engagement were identified.

With this announcement, TrustBIX is moving forward with Sunterra to complete Build Sight engagements at multiple locations. Build Sight mimics an ASHRAE Level II audit and involves both analysis of the building envelope as well as a detailed assessment of electrical and thermal loads and associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Green Metrics supported the completion of the Build Aware engagement and is also providing support on the Build Sight portion.

"At Sunterra, we are always looking at ways to be more efficient and utilize less energy where possible. We are pleased to be working with TrustBIX and Green Metrics to benchmark our operations in order to target possible operational savings," said Ray Price, President of Sunterra.

"We are very excited to be working with a progressive company like Sunterra," said James Freeman, Chief Growth Officer of TrustBIX. "With their vertically-integrated operations, Sunterra is the perfect client to show the value of energy management solutions at all points in the agri-food value chain, and to demonstrate how money can be saved and GHG emissions reduced to enhance sustainability."
