Grohe gets ISO certification for energy management

BERLIN (Germany), January 31, 2017

Grohe, one of the world’s leading providers of sanitary fittings, said it has received the ISO 50001 certification from TÜV Nord for its efficient energy management system.

Grohe scored excellent results in the energy audit conducted for the certification of its energy management system. To conform to ISO 50001, an energy management system needs to document all energy inputs and uses as well as the company’s total energy consumption, said the company in a statement.

Sustainability and energy efficiency are of great importance to Grohe AG. The sanitary manufacturer continues to improve its sustainability profile, which is rooted in long-standing experience and expertise, a commitment reflected in numerous accolades and awards, it stated.

"Our energy management system is of great strategic relevance in terms of reaching our ambitious targets. Among these targets is a 20 per cent increase in our energy efficiency by 2020 compared to 2013," remarked Grohe AG chief executive Michael Rauterkus.

"We have already achieved a 12 per cent increase and I am confident that, with all employees being committed to the successful implementation of the project, we will actually meet our 20 per cent target," noted Rauterkus.

Grohe said the auditors assess the current energy efficiency in terms of the manufacturing output and the energy expended in all related processes.

Beyond capturing a simple snapshot of the situation at the time of the audit, a certified energy management system also promotes a systematic improvement of energy efficiency on an ongoing basis, it stated.

All the requisite organisational and technical measures have been put in place and existing processes have been enhanced through the addition of specific energy management functions, said the German sanitary giant.

"Future improvements will be pushed ahead by the Energy Team - consisting of the energy efficiency managers at all locations - who were also responsible for setting up the system. This reflects the fact that the energy management system covers the entire Grohe AG company with its central units as well as all factories worldwide," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
