PD Teesport is the first port in the Northern Powerhouse to achieve certification to the Energy standard ISO 50001 across all of its 13 sites and operations nationwide.
The accreditation process involved seven days of intense auditing by an external body, Lloyds Register, to ensure PD Ports’ Energy Management System fully met the requirements for the standard.
The ISO 50001 standard specifies an organisation’s requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an energy management system (EnMS) that will help the organisation to use energy more efficiently and integrate better energy management into business strategy.
PD Ports is already certified to the Environmental Standard ISO 14001 and, by incorporating this with ISO 50001, the port operator aims to further reduce energy costs and overall environmental impact.
