The UK company Lafarge Tarmac achieved the international energy management standard ISO 50001 across its Cement and Lime division. It’s the company’s first step in rolling the certification out across its entire UK business by the end of 2015.
ISO 50001 provides organizations with a framework to manage and improve their energy performance, while enhancing operational efficiencies, decreasing energy intensity and reducing environmental impacts.
Over the past year, Lafarge Tarmac has worked to bring each of its cement and lime plants in line with the ISO 50001 energy management system. As part of its efforts to achieve the standard, each of Lafarge Tarmac’s cement and lime sites set up energy committees to encourage greater awareness of the role employees play in reducing on-site energy consumption and implementing energy efficiency initiatives.
