Tata Steel at Shotton is proud to announce its recent certification to ISO 50001, the standard for Energy Management which extends the existing list of ISO standards held by the site. These include ISO 9001 (quality management), ISO 14001 (environmental management) and ISO 45001 (health and safety management).
Shotton, the plant that manufactures Colorcoat® pre-finished products, is the first site in Tata Steel UK to obtain ISO 50001. One of Shotton’s key strategic pillars is to deliver sustainable products and services to the construction market and this accreditation is testament to this focus and ambition.
First launched in 2011, ISO 50001 was developed to recognise those organisations who were committed to addressing their impact and conserving resources through efficient energy management. The benefit of the standard is that it provides a good demonstration that a robust energy management system is in place in an organisation.
On achieving the certification Bill Duckworth Site Manager Shotton Works stated;
“Sustainability is an increasingly important driver and consideration for the construction industry in particular specifiers, designers, architects and building owners.
Our aim is to deliver even more sustainable products to the market which enables future net zero carbon buildings to be achieved whilst reducing our carbon footprint as a site. ISO 50001 is a small, but important step on this journey. It is a widely recognised and externally validated standard that signals our commitment to the market that sustainability is at the centre of our strategy for Shotton.
