Gerresheimer Essen is the first of the Gerresheimer Group’s production facilities to obtain certification for its energy management system (EMS).

The Essen plant was awarded EN 16001:2009 certification at the end of 2011.

The new standard sets uniform EU-wide criteria for structured energy management systems. By implementing the standard, organizations can establish systems and processes which improve their energy efficiency. EN 16001 specifies requirements for an energy management system to enable the development and implementation of a policy and objectives which take into account legal requirements and information about significant energy aspects.

The objective of installing this energy management system at Gerresheimer Essen is to facilitate a systematic and continuous approach to identifying and assessing potential for saving energy so that the appropriate measures can be promptly implemented. This will enable us to achieve long term energy consumption reductions and continuous improvements in energy efficiency.

The next challenges we face are to integrate the new management system in our corporate culture, to ensure that it is used at all times and to continuously optimize it. Moulded Glass Europe is already planning the next steps which involve the certification of other German production facilities in accordance with EN 16001:2009 in 2012.
