ISO 50001 THROUGH PEOPLE – VANDERLANDE CASE-STUDY

Vanderlande Achieves ISO 50001 Energy Management Certification in Record Time. 

Congratulations to VANDERLANDE which has gained certification to the ISO 50001 standard for energy management following a four day audit in December 2017. ISO 50001 is an international standard for Energy Management that not only helps to ensure that the company remains compliant with various legal requirements, but also helps them be more environmentally friendly whilst saving costs.

The external audit followed an intense six months full of activities. Collaboration between the different locations was stimulated by organizing workshops in Veghel in which team members from each location developed and shared their skills and experience. The workshops were facilitated by James Brittain from The Discovery Mill – the focus was on really getting the team motivated and engaged to overcome the challenges involved.

Gert Bossink, Chief Operations Officer for Vanderlande commented, “This is a fantastic achievement and demonstrates how a collaborative and focused approach can bring our teams together from different countries and at all levels in our business to gain this certification so quickly. I am impressed with the team’s commitment to energy management and their enthusiasm in meeting the aims of our policy.”

The auditors were very impressed with how the team applied the standards in a phased approach, which resulted in no non-conformities. As standard templates where created that help each local team review energy consumption and consolidate the information required to effectively manage energy performance, adding other locations to the ISO 50001 certification is relatively easy.
