With organisations becoming more conscious about soaring energy prices and their environmental impact, Certification International, the leader in the assessment and certification of international, national and industry standards, has launched a scheme in line with a new energy management standard.
By working in partnership with Certification International, companies of all sizes and in all sectors, can integrate energy performance into their existing management systems. Aside from promoting best practice in energy efficiency, the scheme can be integrated with a number of other management systems addressing standards such as ISO 9001 (quality), IS0 14001 (environment) and OHSAS 18001 (health and safety).
The scheme is part of Certification International’s commitment to helping clients meet the latest industry standards, and ISO 50001:2011 will become an additional scheme covered by UKAS accreditation.
Managing director John Pymer comments: “As a leader in our field, we’ve grown through the exploration of new markets, and we continuously review the services we offer. This approach enables us to meet the requirements of our clients in all areas of their business. As energy costs rise and the impact a business has on the environment increases in importance, we recognise the need to offer certification for energy management systems.
“The launch of our latest scheme has many benefits and can substantially improve an organisations’ energy efficiency. It also reinforces their commitment to environmental issues. Although the scheme has yet to gain UKAS accreditation we expect this to happen in the near future. Subsequently clients applying for certification now should only need to undergo the auditing process once as we intend to retrospectively issue certificates bearing the UKAS logo when our scheme has been accredited.”
