First Pfizer Plant Worldwide Certified to ISO 50001 Standard – Achieved with Enerit Software

Press release from: Enerit Ltd

Pfizer’s Loughbeg site in Ireland has become the first Pfizer pharmaceutical plant worldwide to achieve the ISO 50001 standard. The pharmaceutical company has long been recognised as one of the industry leaders in energy management.

Pfizer’s global “Energy and Climate Change Program” (ECC) is an all-inclusive, cross-divisional initiative seeking to optimise the consumption of energy and other resources that result from Pfizer's facility and fleet operations. The key goal of the Program is to reduce energy and resource intensity, decrease CO2 emissions and minimise Pfizer's energy resource spend for business operations related to facilities.

Certifying Loughbeg DP (Drug Product) plant to ISO 50001 demonstrates a real commitment to energy management. The standard focuses the site on Key Performance Indicators, engaging senior management and identifying continuous opportunities for improvement. This is the first step of many. Pfizer Loughbeg has a strong long-term commitment to energy management which is reflected by the fundamental role energy management will play in the site’s future strategic goals.

Pfizer chose Enerit ISO 50001 software to implement its energy management program, and was certified to the standard in four months, a record time. Pfizer Loughbeg decided to utilise Enerit ISO 50001 software as it uniquely covers all aspects of the ISO 50001 standard including: significant energy users, energy saving opportunities, energy actions and planning, corrective actions and audit management.

The software significantly improves and simplifies the everyday management of a system which operates in a very busy environment.

What is ISO 50001?

ISO 50001 is an International Standard that enables organisations to establish the systems and processes necessary to improve energy performance, including energy efficiency, use, and consumption.

Implementation of this standard is intended to lead to reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, energy cost, and other related environmental impacts, through systematic management of energy.

The ISO 50001 standard became internationally recognised in June 2011 and promises to reach over 500,000 organisations worldwide.

Enerit ISO 50001 software leads to the automation and implementation of the ISO 50001 standard, and the unique aspect of this software is that it goes beyond completing the standard allowing users to save energy in the long run.

The Enerit ISO 50001 software introduces two key benefits to customers:

- Helping implement energy savings of 10% to 20% through no-cost, low cost measures
- Increased staff cooperation and reduced workload in implementing good energy practices that comply within ISO 50001 approaches.

Neil McCarthy Energy Support for Pfizer Ireland and Paul Farrell Energy Lead for Pfizer Loughbeg said they used Enerit ISO 50001 software because “it pulls all aspects of the standard into one manageable package and greatly simplifies the process”.

Enerit Ltd is the first company in the world to provide comprehensive software for large energy users to implement the ISO 50001 international standard in energy management.

Since our company’s formation in 2004, we have advised some of Europe’s largest companies in energy efficiency in industry and buildings, and we have developed and exported environment and quality management software to multinational customers in Europe and North America.
