Camil Farr has become the first company to join the British Standards Institutes Kitemark scheme for energy reduction verification.
The scheme independently verifies and certificates organisations that achieve a reduction in carbon emissions through low energy use -after being approved for the ERV Kitemark pilot scheme Camfil Farr was audited by BSI to assess its use of energy.
The company reviewed certain aspects of its operations and corrected its existing data collection activities as well as undertaking a pre-audit, and identifying areas of non-conformance set out in the action plan and rectified them. The transition to the ERV Kitemark was completed less than six months after joining the pilot scheme.
Commenting on the impact the ERV Kitemark scheme has made on the company, Camfil Farr’s Managing Director, Bill Wilkinson, Camfil Farr managing director, said: “The ERV Kitemark is an externally recognised verification that we have saved over 14 per cent on energy in the current compliance year and also demonstrates to our stakeholders that we practice what we preach. BSI has put us on the map and verified our system in a very short space of time”.
