As part of its commitment to maximize energy efficiency, Carrington Textiles' main dyeing and printing company, Pincroft, has received ISO 50001 certification, which helps the company use energy more efficiently, conserve natural resources and combat climate change.
ISO 50001 is a standard that provides the tools to use data to better understand energy use and make decisions, continuously improve energy management, and evaluate results. This certification was achieved by training and sensitizing employees for energy consumption and saving, as well as by preparing the energy team, which laid down the framework and examination aspects of the management system.
The installation of energy data trackers to improve energy consumption reports and to continuously improve energy supply also played an important role in achieving the standard.
Pincroft's ISO 50001 complements the site's management systems OHSAS 18001, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. These four ISO certifications are an example of how the textile manufacturer uses ISO standards to make its processes effective and sustainable.
"We are proud to have received ISO 50001 certification," said Andrew Meacher, SHEQ manager of the group. “The team involved has worked hard to achieve this, and we look forward to using our energy more efficiently for the good of the environment and evaluating in the near future how this will help further increase the site's carbon footprint reduce. "
The company has also operated an environmental management system for 14 years that meets the requirements of ISO 14001 for the preparation, dyeing, printing and finishing of fabrics. This shows that the company is continuously committed to and improves sustainable and environmentally friendly practices.
