Imperial Tobacco’s factory at Radom, Poland, has won international recognition for demonstrating best practice in energy management by gaining ISO 50001 certification.
‘Our Radom and Logroño manufacturing sites have been taking part in EnSave, an energy-saving pilot scheme with specialists Danfoss Solutions,’ Imperial said in a note posted on its website.
‘Energy and cost reductions have been achieved as a result of enhanced management processes implemented at both plants.
‘The EnSave project helped the Radom site to obtain the internationally recognised standard for showing effective use of energy and a reduced carbon footprint.’
Factory manager, Katarzyna Wolińska, was quoted as saying that the EnSave project had demonstrated that conscious energy management could result in significant energy and cost savings.
“And obtaining the ISO 50001 certificate shows that our activities are consistent with our goals as a responsible business to manage our energy usage effectively,” Wolińska added
Imperial said that the majority of its manufacturing sites were working towards achieving ISO 50001 as part of the company’s goal of a 20 per cent reduction in energy consumption by 2020 and a further reduction of its environmental impact.
