Certification of the EnMS according to DIN EN ISO 50001


The energy management system at Lauffenmühle has been certified according to DIN EN ISO 50001 

 zertifikat energiemanagement din en 50001


All processes relating to energy efficiency and consumption are recorded, evaluated and correspondingly optimized in accordance with the specifications of our energy management system. The EnMS covers all measures which are planned and implemented to ensure minimum energy use while meeting all performance demands.



What is the energy management system and what does it achieve?


The EnMS influences organisational and technical processes as well as behaviour. Its aim is, from an economic point of view, to reduce overall energy consumption (and therefore also the energy required for production) and the use of basic and additional materials and to continuously improve the energy efficiency of our company.


It serves to systematically record energy flows and form the basis for decisions on investments aimed at improving energy efficiency. This systematic approach enables us to steadily enhance our energy performance and at the same time take into account statutory requirements and other obligations. Furthermore, the system covers the organisational and informational structures required to realise energy management, including the tools required for this. Lauffenmühle uses the EnMS to design and implement its energy policy, planning, introduction and operational procedures, monitoring and measuring, checking and correcting, performance of internal audits as well as regular inspections by the management.



Why has Lauffenmühle decided on voluntary certification of its energy management system? 


Generally speaking, an energy management system encourages the systematic introduction and practice of energy-saving behaviour. As a result, measurable energy savings can be made in the long term with the corresponding positive effect on both cost structures and the efficiency of our processes – which ultimately improves the environmental situation at the macro level. In concrete terms, the following considerations led us to have our energy management system certified according to DIN EN ISO 50001: 


  • Cost reduction
    Rising energy costs reduce productivity. We expect that we can once again cut our energy costs considerably in the coming years by systematically detecting hidden weak points and removing these by simple means.

  • Environmental protection
    Today, climate change is one of the major causes of natural disasters, such as flooding and drought; even now, the negative consequences for man and the environment are considerable. The effects of continuing uncontrolled temperature increases will be even more dramatic: flooding of coastal regions and low-lying island states, widespread desertification, melting glaciers, etc. While climate change continues on a global scale, climate protection must take place on a local level. Only if every single household and every single company plays its part, can we succeed in avoiding the unacceptable risks of climate change. Efficient energy management has a decisive role here, since it can contribute significantly to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Sustainable economic activity
    Efficient use of resources in all areas, and in particular energy, is the most urgent concern of our time. The supply of fossil fuels is limited. Those who continue to bank on these will miss out in the future. Efficient energy management, new energy concepts and innovative energy technologies are the key to operating successfully on the market in the coming years and decades.

  • Transparency for our business partners
    Being certified according to DIN EN ISO 50001 means we can not only promise that our company uses energy sensibly, thereby preserving the environment, we can also prove it. Ecological requirements are playing an increasingly important role in bids for tender in Europe – these also include climate-friendly sourcing.

    For our customers in particular, certification of the energy management system of Lauffenmühle (first time at the end of 2011 - in accordance with the former DIN EN 16001 standard, first published on 1 July 2009) helps to keep track of CO2 emissions.
