ISO 50001 for Associated British Ports
Associated British Ports (ABP) has achieved the international standard for energy management (ISO 50001:2011) after a complete transformation to its approach during 2015, which has enabled the business to deliver improvements in energy efficiency and consumption. With assistance from specialist company DCS Energy, ABP has moved to establish an energy team and an energy management system, undertaken energy training for all employees and completed energy audits across the business.
The company has also moved to invest in renewable energy generating schemes at locations across the UK. Today approximately 70% of the electricity ABP consumes is provided by renewable sources, including a geothermal supply in Southampton, wind turbines in South Wales and an array of solar schemes, including a new £5mn solar array in Barry (pictured).
ABP says it now intends to electrify the company’s vehicle fleet.
