INWIT achieves ISO 50001 certification for its energy management system
Rome, 27 March 2023 – INWIT, Italy’s leading tower operator, has achieved ISO 50001 certification for its management system, with the aim of optimizing energy performance by involving the whole company, with a view to continuous improvement.
The certification was issued after an assessment of the energy management system across all aspects of company activities. Said system must comply with best international practices according to ISO 50001.
INWIT has always been mindful of energy issues. In 2021 it adopted an Energy Policy, which summarises the obligations assumed by Management and therefore by the entire company, in relation to the management and continuous improvement of its energy performance.
To achieve these objectives, an Energy Management System was implemented. As envisaged in the Sustainability Plan, the EMS has led to the achievement of ISO 50001:2018 certification. This significant result will allow the company to make additional efficiency improvements to the monitoring and management of its energy consumption.
Of the energy efficiency initiatives envisaged in the context of the Energy Management System, in 2022 INWIT installed 102 photovoltaic plants at its sites, for total power of over 400 kW, and invested in free cooling systems and high efficiency current rectifiers, capable of creating annual savings of over 9 GWh of electricity.
“Achieving ISO 50001 certification demonstrates the seriousness of the obligations we have assumed and are implementing, in line with our Sustainability Plan”, said Andrea Mondo, Technology & Operations Director at INWIT. “We will continue to work in this direction, promoting a strategy aimed at specific energy efficiency objectives and to reduce climate-altering emissions, by increasing investments and introducing awareness-raising actions for the optimal management of energy use, including among our employees”.
