Limited raw materials, increasing waste production, the effects of climate change – it all attests to the need for systematic energy management. All the more so, considering that investments in energy and resource efficiency often help to reduce production costs, resulting in a competitive advantage. Here at BHS Corrugated, we systematically identify areas with potential for improvement and consistently implement measures for more efficient energy use in our operations.
Good for the budget – and the environment
There are many reasons for systematic energy management: to protect the environment, implement a sustainable way of doing business, reduce costs, etc. The basic prerequisite is to have collected data on energy flows and consumption. The idea is to map out energy costs and where they arise, provide a need-based power supply, minimize greenhouse gases – and, at the same time, raise the energy management awareness of our employees. It is up to all of us to do our part.
Managing energy... takes energy
The company energy management department is responsible for continuously identifying and implementing energy-saving measures, processes and materials. Early on, BHS Corrugated defined this as an important domain to cover in-house. A qualified and dedicated team produces results every day, justifying the investments in systematic energy management and increased energy efficiency.
From the production hall to the offices
The energy management system at BHS Corrugated headquarters in Weiherhammer, Germany is certified in accordance with ISO 50001, an international standard for energy management systems. Our production facilities and office buildings undergo energy audits, after which energy-saving and efficiency-boosting measures are identified and implemented. If you need our certificate for your customers or suppliers, please contact us.
Greater efficiency in the network
In addition to our in-house energy management system, we also take an active interest in current energy-related issues. Since 2015, BHS Corrugated has been a primary network partner for the reduction of energy costs and increase of energy efficiency in businesses within the BENNO network and the former LEEN network of the Institute for Energy Technology at the University of Applied Sciences Amberg-Weiden.
Since 2019, in conjunction with the Hy-Starter project, BHS Corrugated has been involved in the development of a concept for establishing a local hydrogen energy economy in the region of Neustadt an der Waldnaab.
