At manufacturing sites, our policy requires the implementation of energy and environmental management systems. The latter must be certified to conform to the international standard ISO 14001. The energy management system may form part of the overall environmental management system, but must be in-line with the international standard ISO 50001 (or an approved equivalent) and is subject to internal audit by a pool of energy specialists and subject to senior management review.
The importance has been recognised of taking an holistic 'total cost of ownership' approach to drive the purchase of energy efficient equipment, to the extent that specific, detailed, company policies have been developed for the high-impact technologies such as energy efficient lighting and motors. These policies empower employees to make purchasing decisions based on total lifetime impact, rather than initial cost, and their quality has been recognised by the UK Carbon Trust.
