Leiths Group attain ISO 50001 Certification


The Leiths Group successfully achieved registration to the ISO 50001 Energy Management by the British Standards Institute in November 2015.

The ISO 50001 standard provides the framework which our energy management system is based upon and outlines management systems for energy savings throughout our group activities. The standard is applied across all divisions in the group and requires detailed analysis of energy use and more importantly how energy savings can be achieved in our processes and activities.

This management system encompasses activities at our offices and quarries as well as asphalt production, ready-mix production, contract crushing, haulage, construction activities, surfacing activities, demolition, pre-cast manufacture, road lining, planing, technical, fabrication and maintenance activities.

Dave Bremner the group’s QHSE Director said: “Gaining this certificate puts the Leiths group at the forefront of our industry and underlines our commitment to reduction in energy use and the associated benefits to the environment. We can all play a part in reducing energy use throughout our normal day to day operations”.

This system complements our existing registrations to Quality ISO 9001, Health & Safety BS OHSAS 18001, Environmental ISO 14001 and our integrated Management Systems PAS 99.

Having this ISO 50001 registration allows the group to comply with the ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme) which was introduced in 2014 by the EU and places a legal duty on industry to measure and reduce energy use in its activities.
