Although in recent years, various energy conservation measures have been successfully implemented, the company decided to approach the diverse activities of energy efficiency in a more consistent and systematic way. Through the introduction of an energy management system in line with ISO 50001, continuous improvements in energy performance, efficiency and cost reductions can be achieved.
"In building the system, we were able to draw upon a wide range of existing and effective processes in addition to measurable performance targets that enabled us to deliver a system which would gain accreditation within a few months" says the head of Engineering Dr. Ludger Benien.
Our energy management system was audited by the certification company (DQS) in May 2013, and following successful completion of the inspection we were awarded the ISO 50001 certificate."
The current certificate is valid until 05/21/2016.
