CICS, the sustainability assurance provider, is pleased to announce that it has recently certified Keele University’s Energy Management System (EnMS) to ISO 50001.

One of the first universities in the UK to have its EnMS certified to the internationally-recognised standard, Keele University, with the help of the energy management specialists, digitalenergy, implemented the EnMS in order to achieve continual improvement in energy performance.

A member of EAUC, CICS has worked extensively with the education sector, both to certify management systems and to provide sustainability assurance, including verifying carbon footprints and sustainability reports.

Tim Watts, Operations Manager at CICS, says: “Keele University has done a great job in implementing their EnMS with support from digitalenergy in less than 12 months and by opting to have it certified, they’re not only showing that it stands up to scrutiny, they’re also investing in the improvements which continual monitoring brings.”
