The Auchan store in the city of Setúbal is the first of the group to implement an energy management system that relied on the consultancy of Helexia, the multinational energy company. This system is now certified, meeting the requirements of the international standard ISO 50001: energy management systems.

The Setubal store has been developing environmental practices over the past few years that have allowed it, for example, to significantly reduce its electricity consumption by 17% between 2014 and 2019.

This certification is a recognition of all the work that has been done and a permanent commitment to continuously improve its environmental and energy performance, integrating them into the overall management of the company.

According to Marta Jordão, Director of Energy Efficiency Operations at Helexia, "an energy management system empowers organizations to continuously improve and design the systems and processes needed to improve their energy performance."

What is ISO 50001 Certification

Energy costs in organizations can be high and are present at different points in the value chain, from the processing of raw materials to the distribution of products.

Besides the economic factor, environmental and social factors regarding energy use are also estimated, and are beginning to be felt through greenhouse gas emissions that are accelerating climate change.

By implementing an energy management system that follows the parameters of the ISO 50001 standard you are reinforcing your organization's commitment to sustainable energy use in a systematic improvement of energy performance, reducing costs and CO2 emissions.

ISO 50001 provides a basis for implementing an effective energy management system, focusing on achieving improvements in its own energy performance, assisting in the purchase of more energy-efficient products and services, and incorporating elements to improve energy performance.

In addition, this certification is internationally recognized, strengthening the reputation of companies that certify themselves with their customers.
