Part of leading construction materials supplier Aggregate Industries, Lafarge Cement has achieved BS EN ISO50001:2018 in Energy Management Systems. The certification was awarded after the company demonstrated its ongoing commitment to energy efficiency.
The latest version of the standard for energy management systems, the certification requires companies to show continuous improvement in reducing the energy intensity of their operations. It is a formal recognition of Lafarge Cement’s high standard of energy governance, which has seen the business set up its own dedicated taskforce, overseen by Aggregate Industries’ executive committee. The taskforce has set out and met specific targets in monitoring and verifying energy performance against measurable outcomes.
“As a market-leader in cement production and supply, we are constantly looking at ways to use energy more efficiently, and have been quick off the mark to update our energy management systems (EnMS) in line with the new requirements of BS EN ISO50001:2018,” said Barry Hope, Director at Lafarge Cement. “We are delighted to achieve this certification as it is an important demonstration of our continuing commitment to conserve resources and minimise the energy intensity of our cement operations where possible.”
