Elfab awarded with ISO 14001 Environmental Management System

Elfab Europe’s leading manufacturer of rupture discsexplosion vents and burst detection systems have been awarded with the Environmental Management System ISO 14001 through Lloyds Register. This highly recognised standard helps companies identify, prioritise and manage its environmental risks as part of its normal business practices.

Elfab pride itself on taking «green» approaches and have implemented a number of changes throughout the business to ensure they are as environmentally friendly as possible. Implementation of such activities is having many positive financial benefits for the pressure management company.

Elfab’s initial focus was to reduce energy consumption. The primary method of achieving this goal involved regular reading of gas and electricity meters to establish a pattern of energy usage.  Daily meter monitoring enabled the company to quickly identify energy-draining activities and it could then take appropriate action to combat this high consumption.

Timers have been fitted throughout the offices and meeting rooms to ensure electricity is not wasted when these rooms are not in use and temperature controls implemented to suit the time of year. Additionally, in the offices shredding of waste paper has been encouraged and all employees are instructed to turn their computers and monitors off when they are not in the office. Suggestions on how additional environmental practices can be implemented are encouraged. Every employee in the company is aware of its Environmental Policy and have undergone extensive training on the advantages of becoming more environmentally aware.
