Nampak’s sustainability relies on its ability to produce packaging that is economically, socially and environmentally friendly. The company is aware that the benefits of packaging have to be balanced with the depletion of natural resources, the generation of packaging waste, the efficient use of energy and their carbon footprint.
The ISO 50001:2011 is available to any organisation wishing to ensure that it conforms to its stated energy policy and follows a systematic approach in achieving continual improvement of energy performance, including energy efficiency, energy use and energy consumption.
Glass packaging is an energy intensive business, and although active energy management practises are already applied at Nampak Glass, the systematic processes and procedures of ISO50001: 2011 will enhance further energy efficient practices.
The Energy Management system certified on ISO 50001:2011 reinforces that Nampak Glass is a responsible sustainable packaging manufacturing company. It further illustrates that standards are applied in the production environment and manufacture of glass containers.
The ISO50001:2011 assists Nampak Glass in focussing on energy usage in the process of glass making through energy efficient innovative new designs and energy consumption awareness throughout the operation.
In order to improve energy efficiency, reduce costs and ultimately improve the carbon footprint of the business, Nampak Glass will be using the latest energy efficient technology at their ...
