Viridor credited for energy systems

Viridor has gained certification for its energy management systems, the first British company in the sector to do so.

It has been awarded the ISO 50001 accreditation by the British Standards Institute.

Andrew Whitehorn Viridor

The standard was launched in June 2011, and both measures a company’s energy management systems and requires improvement in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. 

Head of carbon management Andrew Whitehorn (pictured) said: “The world increasingly recognises the need for both governments and industry to reduce carbon emissions and modify processes to consume energy responsibly and efficiently.

“Achieving ISO 50001 demonstrates to our customers and stakeholders that Viridor is committed to transforming itself into a company with reduced costs and reduced reliance on fossil fuels.”
