Integrated management systems

Effective management systems help your business to meet the requirements of customers, authorities and employees. Various management systems, such as ISO 9001, ISO 50001, ISO 14001, EMAS and OHSAS 18001, can be efficiently integrated, thanks to their clear structure.

Today, energy management systems according to DIN EN ISO 50001 (or ISO 16247 for SMEs) are, along with EMAS, essential to qualify for the “Spitzensteuerausgleich” (revenue peak adjustment for energy intensive users) and the reduction of the EEG surcharge. In addition, they create transparency in your energy flows, which is a prerequisite for continuously increasing your company’s energy efficiency and therefore reducing your energy costs.

In addition to energy management systems, environmental management systems according to DIN EN ISO 14001 make it possible to assess and optimise a company’s overall environmental performance. The two systems are very easy to combine because they are structured in a very similar fashion. Both standards are based on the DIN EN ISO 9001 Quality Management System. The ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 recently were revised, resulting in new challenges, but also benefits, for your business.

As the most ambitious management system, EMAS comprises all requirements of DIN EN ISO 14001. Furthermore, a legal compliance check by an authorized environmental verifier and a published environmental statement are mandatory. The latter does not only serve as a simple reporting of environmental impact but also proved to be an effective marketing instrument. In our times of „green thinking“ this is a remarkable benefit. Apart from its function as a recognized management system for „Spitzenausgleich“ (revenue peak adjustment for energy intensive users) and reduction of EEG surcharge EMAS offers various additional opportunities of public funding and privileging (e.g. easing of public supervision in the fields of water, emissions and waste).

A company wishing to improve the energy, environmental and quality standards of its products and services always requires a high level of motivation in its employees. In this context, an occupational health and safety management system according to OHSAS 18001 is the perfect addition. A combined system created from the aforementioned standards increases the efficiency of your business, reduces negative environmental impacts, improves employee health and raises employee satisfaction levels, while ensuring top quality and maximum security.

We are happy to advise you on the background and requirements of these systems, as well as the opportunities they offer, in order to work together with you to build an effective management system that is tailored to your company’s needs.
