Armor obtains EN 16001 certification

March 24, 2011

The certification is the European standard for energy management systems.

Armor, a manufacturer of thermal transfer ribbons headquartered in Nantes, France has become the third French company to obtain EN 16001 certification. EN 16001 is the European standard for energy management systems (EMS) and offers a comprehensive set of guidelines to meet carbon emissions reduction requirements. ISO 50001, the future international standard for EMS, will be broadly derived from EN 16001.

The certification is in recognition of the EMS implemented at Armor’s Thermal Transfer Industrial Expertise Centre (TTIEC). This EMS is part of the Energy Demand Management initiative within the company’s “Decaplan” Global Responsibility program, which will lead to ISO 50001 appliance when this standard is published.

Armor TTIEC, which has received other awards in the field of sustainable development, is already ISO 9001 (quality), ISO 14001 (environment) and OHSAS 18001 (health and safety) certified.
