Following a series of audits, Landmarc Support Services (Landmarc) has achieved certification to the BSI ISO 50001 Energy Management Standard, which supports its aim to become a Net Zero Carbon business by 2035.

ISO 50001 outlines the best way to achieve energy efficiency, helping businesses to meet their environmental and carbon reduction targets as part of improved energy performance. To achieve the Standard, Landmarc successfully implemented a number of measures including a new Environmental Management System (EnMS), Energy Management Teams and an improved Utilities Management Bureau (UMB), which provides a range of data and analytics to help the business better understand its energy use.

Sustainability Manager, Steve Judd, said, “Implementing an internationally recognised and certified Energy Management System (EnMS) will help us to reduce our energy, carbon and climate impacts across the UK Defence Training Estate, supporting the Government commitment to become a Net Zero Carbon economy by 2050 and Landmarc’s aim to achieve Net Zero Carbon by 2035.

“The Standard has been achieved in record time and is thanks to the hard work of our sustainability and energy management teams, who are helping to drive a culture change in energy use by setting local energy objectives, implementing energy saving action plans, reporting on energy performance and improving energy efficiency.”

Managing Director, Mark Neill, added, “Sustainability is an integral part of our business and this achievement proves what can be delivered​​ when we work together. Aligning our activities to the new Standard will enable us to become more energy efficient, improve building standards, encourage more sustainable travel and find more innovative ways to offset our carbon emissions. Congratulations to the team.”
