Serviceline first in UK catering equipment sector to achieve ISO 50001 energy standard

Serviceline achieves ISO 50001

Serviceline achieves ISO 50001 energy management standard. Our continuous ISO engagement ensures Serviceline is first of the Ali Group companies in addition to being considered the first business within the UK catering equipment industry to comply.

Major hotel groups including Hilton and Marriott, universities, stadia operators and contract caterers operating in the UK have already lead the way and qualified for the standard.

“ISO 50001 provides a framework to ensure that energy is better managed for the future, benefitting Serviceline as a company and improving efficiency and service for our customers,”

“But it also helps in achieving sustainability targets for the planet and our customers expect Serviceline to demonstrate that we have the same high standards in our business as they have in theirs.

“Serviceline works for the most prestigious foodservice organisations in the UK and it is imperative that we lead by example. The ISO 50001 Energy Management System is now added to our ISO 9001 Quality, ISO 14001 Environment and OHSAS 18001 Health and Safety portfolio.

“A key part of achieving certification has been a company-wide review of energy consumption and energy saving opportunities, to develop a prioritised programme of work to reduce energy use and carbon emissions. Using energy efficiently helps organizations save money as well as helping to conserve resources and tackle climate change.

“A major advantage is that ISO 50001 involves and encourages our staff, including our 120 engineers, to identify opportunities for improvements and efficiency. Serviceline has ambitious plans to reduce its carbon emissions and ISO 50001 provides a clear framework that helps the staff to see how important their individual roles are to reaching our goals.

“We welcome the regular audits from management standards agencies as they ensure that throughout our business, staff are continually aware of the need to operate all systems within the agreed protocols and this in turn ensures that we are the best that we can be.”

ISO 50001 is based on the management system model of continual improvement also used for other well-known standards such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. This makes it easier for organizations to integrate energy management into their overall efforts to improve quality and environmental management.

Successful implementation provides a robust framework of requirements for organizations to:-
Measure and monitor energy use to identify where to improve efficiency
Reduce carbon emissions and meet government reduction targets
Demonstrate environmental credentials to increase tender opportunities
ISO50001 goes beyond the requirement of the ESOS Regulations 2014 which bring into force Article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive and mandate that all large businesses in the UK undertake comprehensive assessments of energy use and energy efficiency opportunities at least once every four years.
