Energy Management at Mitsubishi HiTec Paper Europe certified as DIN EN 16001 compliant

(PresseBox) ( Bielefeld, )
Mitsubishi HiTec Paper Europe (MPE) has long taken environmental and sustainability concerns into account in the production of its high-quality special papers. Now it's gone one step further: Its existing energy management system has been certified as DIN EN 16001 compliant.

Managing Director Gerhard Schoon emphasises that "MPE's existing energy management system was already an acknowledgement of the company's obligation to environmental preservation and responsible use of non-renewable resources". Energy concerns have routinely been reviewed within the framework of the environmental management system, and an energy management system has been in place for years, to great success. Recognising the increasing importance of energy as an issue at large, MPE has formally adapted energy awareness into the company's policies and has introduced an energy management system certified to the DIN EN 16001 standard.

"The recently certified system does more than just us in a position to pursue our goal of constant improvement of our energy efficiency and energy cutting efforts", notes Gerd Finkenhofer, MPE's energy management officer. "In the sense of continuous improvement, we naturally expect that before the year is out the current certification based on the European standard will be replaced by DIN EN ISO 50001 certification, which is valid worldwide and befits our globally active company".

The process of continuous improvements that has been initiated ensures responsible, sustainable handling of resources throughout the entire company. Among other contributions, it has been shown reduce greenhouse gas emissions. All units of the company are affected: from R&D to purchasing, from the production chain as a whole to maintenance and repairs and on to distribution logistics. The installed systems at the Bielefeld and Flensburg locations have been inspected and certified by TÜV Nord.
