Time period
12/2013 to 01/2015

Planning object
Preparation of a certification according to ISO 50001

In highly competitive markets, a cost advantage can be crucial to the overall success of the company. The customer therefore planned to optimize its energy-intensive production and to leverage energy efficiency potentials. Furthermore, a system was to be developed that would ensure long-term efficiency potential – therefore an energy management system according to ISO 50001 was introduced. GREAN accompanied, coordinated and implemented the entire process.

First of all, GREAN had to establish a basic transparency of energy consumption. For this purpose, the most important energy consumers were balanced. Furthermore, practical suggestions were made as to which methods could be used to reduce energy consumption. On this basis, GREAN designed a management system that complies with ISO 50001. This system was introduced in the organisation, explained to the employees in training courses and brought to certification.

In detail, the following services were provided:

  • Derivation of efficiency potentials for the energy sources used

  • Conception of a management system according to ISO 50001

  • Monitoring the introduction of the management system

  • Employee training

  • Preparation for certification


Factory planning

New construction on a greenfield site or expansion of existing buildings - we offer you comprehensive advice and sophisticated planning services for a well conceived factory. For us, this includes basic master and factory structure planning as well as support for your project right through to implementation. Whether new or reorganisation planning - we are experts in factory planning.

Process optimization

In many factories, high inventories, long travel, search or lead times are a major cost factor, which at the same time massively reduces production efficiency. This is what we do: Our customers benefit from well-founded, systematic and analytical consulting. In this way, we work with you to increase the efficiency of your production.

Resource efficiency

High and ever increasing material and energy costs are becoming an efficiency problem in many factories. We systematically investigate where potential is lying dormant and then identify meaningful and economical measures for improvement. In this way we increase the material and energy efficiency in your factory - and at the same time reduce your energy bill.
