Container glass manufacturer Saint-Gobain Oberland has achieved energy management standard DIN EN ISO 50001: 2011 certification.

The result of the audit as well as the associated awarding of the certificate proves that the company deals with energy sensibly and consciously.

The company provides an important contribution towards environmental and climate protection through professional energy management, for instance through the long-term reduction of CO2 emissions.

The certification is valid for the entire company and includes all four locations in Germany: Bad Wurzach, Neuburg, Essen and Wirges. So-called “energy teams” - which organisationally support consistent energy management in the company, and thereby exploit unused energy efficiency potentials and implement target-oriented measures - were already formed in all plants beforehand.

“The TÜV Rheinland Cert GmbH auditors were very pleased with the Saint-Gobain Oberland projects for energy management as well as the economically sensible and thereby efficient use of energy, and certified the effectiveness of the energy management system”, said Simone Spielmann, the specialist responsible for energy and environment at Saint-Gobain Oberland, in explaining the audit.
