Kingspan sets the standard 4 energy efficiency

Kingspan Insulation is pleased to announce that its manufacturing facility in Pembridge, Herefordshire has now been certified to energy management standard ISO 50001.

The voluntary standard provides organisations with a best practice framework for integrating energy performance improvements into all aspects of their management practices. It complements the existing standards ISO 9001(Quality Management), ISO 14001 (Environmental) and OHSAS 18001 (Health and Safety) to which the site’s fully integrated management system has already been certified.

Kingspan Group voluntarily discloses its environmental performance and carbon emissions via the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) and Kingspan Insulation also carries out annual comprehensive reviews of energy usage at the site. Clear improvement plans are identified for the introduction of new staff training, energy reduction measures and renewable energy generation technologies at the site.

The improvements support the firm’s ongoing effort to achieve Net Zero Energy, whereby the net energy demand of the facility is matched with renewable energy generated locally around it. Kingspan Group is committed to achieving this goal across all of its site by 2020; Kingspan Insulation is aiming to reach this by 2018.

Adrian Pargeter, Head of Marketing and Product Development at Kingspan Insulation commented:

We are delighted to receive this latest certification. The model of continual improvement which the standard requires is central not only to our energy efficiency policy, but also to our ongoing work developing new, higher performance insulation products.

Kingspan Insulation is set to roll out ISO 50001 across all of its manufacturing sites over the next few years.
