Posted on

Arjowiggins Graphic successfully implements ISO 50001

This international standard recognises businesses that are demonstrating best practice in energy management and whilst following a programme for continuous improvement.

The careful and responsible use of energy has long been an important part of the Arjowiggins Graphic corporate policy that extends to all departments and employees.

Although in recent years, various energy conservation measures have been successfully implemented, the company decided to approach the diverse activities of energy efficiency in a more consistent and systematic way. Through the introduction of an energy management system in line with ISO 50001; continuous improvements in energy performance, efficiency and cost reductions can be achieved.

Energy Management at Arjowiggins Graphic has become an integral part of the management system and having already achieved the ISO9001 Quality, ISO14001 Environment, OHSAS18001 Health and Safety and FSCTM Chain of Custody standards, this now completes our programme. It has been an outstanding team effort from the Arjowiggins Graphic’s staff to accomplish the certification process.

“Environmental performance and energy management are rooted in Arjowiggins Graphics culture and have been a priority since the creation of the Company. Today, our products and technologies are recognised as enabling low energy consumption for the end user. It is completely complementary now for our 4 manufacturing sites producing these products to be certified; an acknowledgement of the substantial work undertaken at our sites for better energy consumption and management,” commented Agnes Roger, Chief Executive Arjowiggins Graphic.

The efficient use of all energy sources deployed at Arjowiggins Graphic also makes a contribution to the long term and sustainable improvement of our competitiveness and shows that as a company, we are committed to the responsible treatment of valuable resources.
