Food manufacturing is one of the nation’s largest manufacturing sectors in most countries. A rising concern is 'Energy' as increasing energy costs have an important economic impact on the food industry. Cooling systems, room temperature control, energy consuming manufacturing machines and delivery from distribution centers to stores/supermarkets are energy-intensive, driving up the consumption.
An Energy Management Standard provides organizational framework for the food industry to integrate energy efficiency into management practices. This includes fine-tuning production processes and improving energy efficiency of manufacturing systems, and of the transportation fleet. There is a substantial financial benefit for a business given current high prices of energy.
The objective of this webinar is to give an overview of the ISO 50001:2011 Energy Management System Certification requirements and how energy management systems can help the food industry improve energy efficiency and save costs.
