EN 16001 Energy Management System certification for Endress+Hauser

11 November 2010

Endress+Hauser has achieved certification of its Energy Management System in the UK, adding the recently introduced BS EN 16001 to its list of management system certifications.

The certification was granted following the introduction of processes and systems to improve energy efficiency at its Manchester office and production centre. This has included installing the company's own automatic energy monitoring and targeting (aM&T) system into the building to measure and control electricity, gas and compressed air usage. The company has also adopted energy saving technology, such as movement controlled lighting and a variable temperature pump controlled heating system, as well as introducing regular communication with staff to promote the benefits of adopting environmental efficiencies.
The company has already achieved ISO 9001 Quality, ISO 14001 Environmental and OHSAS 18001 Health & Safety Management Systems certification. EN16001 is closely linked to the ISO 14001 standard. However, while the environmental standard is aimed at reducing pollution and environmental harm, the energy management standard is focused on lowering energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, and thus reducing the company’s contribution to global warming.
Commenting on the achievement, David Kershaw, Quality Manager at Endress+Hauser Ltd, said: “This new management system certification demonstrates to our employees, customers and other stakeholders that we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint. The system we have installed in Manchester will help us to reduce energy costs, as well as showcasing the aM&T technology developed by Endress+Hauser that will allow our customers in the process industries to meet their environmental responsibilities and, if they wish, achieve EN 16001 certification themselves.”
