Lafarge Cement secure ISO 50001
Company achieves energy-management certification following ongoing improvement in energy efficiency
LAFARGE Cement, part of Aggregate Industries, have achieved BS EN ISO 50001:2018 certification in Energy Management Systems after demonstrating their ongoing commitment to energy efficiency.
As the latest version of the standard for Energy Management Systems, BS EN ISO 50001:2018 requires companies to show continuous improvement in reducing the energy intensity of their operations.
Aggregate Industries say the certification is formal recognition of Lafarge Cement’s high standard of energy governance, which has seen the business set up its own dedicated energy taskforce, overseen by Aggregate Industries’ executive committee.
The taskforce has set out and met specific targets in monitoring and verifying energy performance against measurable outcomes.
Barry Hope, director at Lafarge Cement, said: ‘As a market-leader in cement production and supply, we are constantly looking at ways to use energy more efficiently and have been quick off the mark to update our energy-management systems in line with the new requirements of BS EN ISO 50001:2018.
‘We’re delighted to achieve this certification as it’s an important demonstration of our continuing commitment to conserving resources and minimizing the energy intensity of our cement operations where possible.’
