In 2016, our energy management efforts were rewarded with all our stores being certified to the ISO 50001 Energy Management Standard. One year later, this accreditation was extended to our 3 Distribution Centres, Dublin Head Office and newly built stores, 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.
