Setting an example in energy efficiency

Setting an example in energy efficiency

 

/ ERIKS NETHERLANDS HAS BECOME ONE OF A FEW DUTCH COMPANIES TO BE ISO 50001 CERTIFIED. NOT ONLY DO THEY NOW HAVE THE KNOW-HOW TO ADVISE OTHER BUSINESSES ON THEIR ENERGY MANAGEMENT PRACTICES AND EMISSIONS, THEY ALSO HAVE THE PROOF OF THIS EXPERTISE.

With a target of reducing energy consumption and emissions by 20% by 2020, ERIKS Netherlands saw the need to implement an effective energy management system within the business. This would also have the added benefit of demonstrating its capability to achieve its aim of € 20 million of environmental savings for customers.

The new system manages and controls energy consumption, with usage monitored and reported on a regular basis – not only showing progress towards the 2020 reduction target but also helping to encourage further energy consumption improvements. This proven expertise gives ERIKS Netherlands even greater authority to customers who might be struggling to set or reach their own energy-saving targets. Combined with the comprehensive and specialist knowledge of potential energy-saving measures – from more efficient electric motors to special gaskets – ERIKS is able to take a new approach to sales, emphasising sustainability within Total Cost of Ownership and saving customers money.

The efforts and successes of ERIKS Netherlands now represent a blueprint for sustainability for ERIKS Group companies worldwide

CO2 NEUTRAL CERTIFICATIONenergy-efficiency.jpg

In addition to the ISO 50001 certificate, ERIKS Netherlands has been awarded CO2 Neutral certification after taking a series of steps to eliminate or balance-out its CO2 emissions.

Measures include using 100% green electricity, using energy from incinerated waste to provide heating, running a vehicle fleet with an annually reducing CO2 emissions cap, and reducing air travel through virtual meetings over the internet. At the same time, the company is neutralising the small amount of CO2 it still emits, by supporting a wind energy project in two villages in Gujarat, India. This offsets the emissions by reducing the amount of fossil-fuel generated electricity the villages would otherwise be using.
