Toscotec awarded ISO 50001 certification for efficient energy management


Toscotec has been certified to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 50001:2018 energy management system. The certification was issued by Certiquality, an independent third-party assurance body validated by Italy’s national accreditation body Accredia. 

With a view to upgrading its energy performance, Toscotec has adopted a systematic approach by developing and implementing a standardised, process-based energy management structure, which is based on a model of constant improvement that the company also uses for other standards such as ISO 14001:2015. This facilitates the integration of this newly-established energy management system into Toscotec’s efforts to improve its overall environmental management. In fact, the ISO 50001 certification has been harmonized with Toscotec’s long-standing ISO 14001 and EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) environmental certifications.

Andrea Marzaro, Operations Director (COO) at Toscotec, says, “Toscotec’s corporate sustainability strategy encompasses the achievement and long-term maintenance of key ISO certifications. Together with our Health, Safety, Environment (HSE) and Sustainability teams, we progressively increase our efforts towards more sustainable operations, as well as the continuous improvement of the company’s occupational health and safety system put in place with our ISO 45001 certification.”

Along with the development of more sustainable operations, Toscotec has also focused on leading the industry in the decarbonization of the paper industry by designing and manufacturing both carbon-free and energy-efficient technological solutions such as 100% hydrogen or electric hood air heating systems, and induction steel Yankee dryer.
