Aggregate Industries has achieved certification from BSI to ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems, after demonstrating its company-wide commitment to energy efficiency.
This follows and expands upon the successful certification of its cement business, Lafarge Cement, in 2018.
The latest version of the standard offers organisations guidance on how to manage energy consumption and lower usage. As part of the leading construction and infrastructure player’s commitment to this, it set up a dedicated energy taskforce, overseen by the company’s executive committee, which has specific monitoring and performance targets.
Guy Edwards, Chief Executive Officer at Aggregate Industries UK, commented: “Receiving formal recognition of our effective energy governance is a great achievement for our entire company, as it further demonstrates our pledge to minimise outputs across all operations, which will in turn lower our CO2 emissions.
“Sustainability remains at the heart of what we do and our aim is to make a positive contribution to the built environment now and for future generations.
“In order to do this, we will continue to maximise our energy efficiencies, as well as offer a wide choice of sustainable products and services designed to help our customers lower CO2 emissions released over the whole life-cycle of a project.”
Carla Whyte, Key Accounts Proposition Manager EMEA at BSI, said: “Aggregate Industries has demonstrated its commitment to sustainability and the environmental benefits certification to the Energy Management standard brings.
“Additional business benefits include; compliance with legislation and a reduction in cost, waste and risk. The team should be delighted that this certification has been achieved.”
