For Chomarat, the certifications are the first milestone towards a sustainable economy

ISO 50001 certification is validation of efficient energy management, with the bonus of lower energy consumption and the tools needed to address a warming climate.

ISO 14001 certification is based on standards and requirements, and it constitutes an international benchmark for environmental management systems.

Methods that have been implemented include reducing noise level, preventing pollution risks and improving waste management. Fluorescent lighting has been replaced by LEDs, more energy-efficient equipment has been installed, and the heating and air-conditioning ductwork has been insulated to reduce fuel-oil consumption.

The certifications signify the company’s determination to pursue a sustainable process. Environment and energy manager, Laurent Verite says: “By obtaining both ISO 14001 and ISO 50001 certification, Chomarat now has a tested and standardised framework for developing an effective, sustainable environmental and energy management strategy.”

The twofold certification is in keeping with Chomarat’s long-term vision to become actively involved in sustainable development and a sustainable innovation initiative.

Chief executive officer, Raphael Laurent says: “Chomarat is committed to a responsible and sustainable process for all of its activities in France. With ISO 14001 certification, the group is incorporating environmental requirements into its management and production systems. Our strategy is implemented through new investments and international development. But the group is also actively involved in sustainable development.”

Verite concludes: “It is thanks to the combined efforts of all Chomarat’s team that we were able to obtain these two certifications. For us, this is our first milestone towards a sustainable economy.”
