AN INCREASINGLY EFFICIENT ENERGY POLICY: THE SITES OF LIMANA AND SOLESINO OBTAIN ISO 50001 CERTIFICATION

05/03/2021

Epta has always been active in promoting sustainable development and, to achieve the highest standards, it is constantly committed to increasing the environmental and energy performance of its production sites, merging protection of the resources and reduction of energy consumption for the units produced. A virtuous process that is renewed with the recently obtained ISO 50001 certification for the plants of Limana and Solesino in Veneto, Northern Italy, in line with the numerous activities defined by the Company to respond with tangible actions to the Climate and Energy Framework 2030 of the European Union. Furthermore, the criteria underlying the certification reflect the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) proposed by the UN, namely clean and accessible Energy and Battle against Climate Change, with which the Company has shown a natural convergence. 

The certification, already obtained in 2016 by the site of Hendaye in France, specifies    the requirements to create, start, maintain and improve an Energy Management System (EMS). Following the “Plan-Do-Check-Act” cycle, it defines a systematic approach for long-term continuous improvement. The goal of Epta is to facilitate the optimization of the performance of its sites, assessing at the same time the energy efficiency and the use of energy along the entire value chain. Furthermore, alignment of the ISO 50001 with the structure of the other standards, such as ISO 9001 for Quality, ISO 14001 for the Environment and ISO 45001 for Safety, facilitates the implementation of the Integrated Certification System pursued by the Group.
