In 2016, our energy management efforts were rewarded with all our stores and our Northern Irish Distribution Centre being certified to the ISO 50001 Energy Management Standard. One year later, we extended this accreditation to our remaining Distribution Centres, newly built stores and our Dublin Head Office, certifying 100% of our properties.
By becoming certified to the ISO 50001 Standard, we have demonstrated that our energy management system meets the requirements set by the International Standards Organisation (ISO). This gives our customers, stakeholders, employees and management the confidence that our energy consumption is responsible and continuously improved.
Not only is it the right thing to do for the environment, but our efficiency programmes help to reduce energy usage – a saving we can pass on to our customers. Employee training and awareness campaigns ensure we are continuously improving our performance.
