Enhanced energy efficiency thanks to ISO 50001 certification 22.07.2016
Axens SA was recently awarded ISO 50001 certification for a period of three years, in connection with the implementation of a management system to control and optimize its energetic performance.
ISO certifications lead companies to implement strategic tools to meet challenges in the current economic world.
Axens developed a policy for a more efficient use of energies and continuous improvement of its energy management. Energies taken into account were electricity, high- and low-pressure steam, gas and compressed air, as well as industrial and demineralized water. The audit scope covered the production units of the Salindres site and Axens’ head office in Rueil. The Salindres site represents approximately 90% of Axens SA energy consumption.
Several departments in relation with this scope have been associated to this project: maintenance, technical assistance, human resources and purchasing. This excellent result comes from the strong involvement and outstanding cooperation between the different departments involved in the process, despite very tight deadlines.
This certification rounds out the triple certification of Axens based on ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environment) and OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety).
