UAE-based National Central Cooling Company (Tabreed) has announced that it has received the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 50001:2018 certification for the successful implementation of its Energy Management System. 
 
Tabreed’s Energy Management System, developed in accordance with its operational excellence and due focus on energy efficiency requirements across all its 75 plants in the region, has enabled the company to receive the ISO 50001 certification, said the company in its statement. 
 
This ISO standard is based upon best practices and global benchmarks, and is intended  to enable organizations to follow a systematic approach to achieving continual improvement of energy performance, consumption and sustainability, it added.
 
Tabreed is the first district cooling company in the region to have been certified under the revised version (2018) of the ISO 50001 standard, said a top official.
 
"Being awarded with an ISO 50001 certification is a clear manifestation of Tabreed’s efforts of more than 20 years in optimizing energy efficiency," remarked its CEO Bader Saeed Al Lamki. 
 
"We are proud of this achievement. Our commitment towards sustainability is evedent through our robust Energy Management System, which is particularly important  within the context of the GCC’s growing demand for environmentally friendly cooling solutions," he added.
 
In the first half of 2019, Tabreed contributed to saving 656 million kilowatt/hours across the GCC – enough energy to power approximately 37,368 homes in the UAE annually. 
 
These power savings prevented the release into the atmosphere of 392,000 tons of carbon dioxide – the equivalent of eliminating the emissions of 85,279 vehicles annually.
 
For over 20 years, Tabreed remains the partner of choice for organizations across the GCC in providing environmentally friendly district cooling solutions that support the region’s energy sustainability strategy. 
 
Tabreed also holds the ISO 9001:2015 accreditation for quality management systems, ISO 14001:2015 for environmental management systems, and OHSAS 18001 for occupational health and safety management systems.-TradeArabia News Service
