Allsteel awarded ISO 50001 certification

Thursday 12 July 2012

The US office furniture manufacturer, Allsteel, has been awarded ISO 50001 Energy Management System certification – and claims to be the first furniture manufacturer in the world to be certified to this new global energy management standard and only the third company in the U.S. to receive the rating. Additionally, the company earned Superior Energy Performancecm(SEP) Gold certification, achieving more than 10% in energy reductions since its 2008 energy baseline.

"These are the current pinnacles of sustainability, and it's a proud moment for Allsteel to have achieved this," commented Jeff Lorenger, Allsteel president. "We congratulate and thank all those on the Allsteel team who have been so relentlessly vigilant in leading us to this moment. But, in all of its 100 years, Allsteel has always steadied its focus on the future, and we will continue to raise the bar on our own performance so that we progressively decrease our own energy footprint."

According to Keri Luly, Allsteel's manager of sustainability programs, the company's 650,000-square-foot manufacturing facility qualified for these latest certifications by committing to incorporate energy saving systems that will yield a 25 percent reduction in energy intensity over 10 years. To this end, several initiatives have already been completed, such as the installation of a 21,200 kWh rooftop solar array. Other energy efficiency accomplishments contributing to the certifications include annual average reductions over the past two years on its air compressor system by 2,359,837 kWh and on its VFD dust collection system by 696,428.571 kWh.
