INWIT achieves ISO 50001 certification for its energy management system
INWIT achieves certification of its Energy Management System according to the ISO 50001 standard with the aim of optimising energy performance by involving the entire company, with a view to continuous improvement.
The certification was granted after a comprehensive audit of the energy management system in all aspects of the company’s operations, which complies with international best practices according to the ISO 50001 standard.
INWIT’s commitment to improve energy management
INWIT has always been attentive to energy issues and in 2021 adopted an Energy Policy, which summarises the commitments made by the Management and the entire company, and defined a set of strategies and rules for the management and continuous improvement of its energy performance.
To achieve these goals, in line with the Sustainability Plan, an Energy Management System has been implemented and certified according to the ISO 50001:2018 standard. This important achievement will enable the company to further improve the monitoring and management of its energy consumption.
Among the energy efficiency initiatives envisaged within the Energy Management System are: the installation in 2022 of 102 photovoltaic systems on INWIT sites with a total capacity of more than 400 kW, and the realisation of investments in free cooling systems and high-efficiency power rectifiers, capable of generating annual savings of more than 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. 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.Andrea Mondo, Technology & Operations Director at INWIT
