In 2019, SGS Turkey embraced the SGS Energy Efficiency in Buildings (EEB) program and started implementing the Add Value with Lëss initiative, with the aim of reducing energy consumption and improving overall business efficiency.
Having implemented various energy conservation measures in the past, SGS Turkey now wishes to pursue additional opportunities to improve its energy efficiency key performance indicators (KPIs) using the EEB Program as a framework for its strategy.The first step, assessing key buildings, has already begun. Once the assessments are completed, options for upgrading facilities will be considered. These may include improving lighting systems, upgrading heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) units and investing in renewable energy.
Alongside the EEB program, in September 2019, SGS Turkey launched its “Add Value with Lëss” initiative to help identify sources of waste, reduce excess inventory, improve productivity and adopt a more standardized approach to business processes. There are clear overlaps with this and with the EEB program – reducing our environmental footprint is a shared objective. By combining approaches to facilities management and approaches to employee behaviors, we have already made great strides toward improving overall efficiency in the workplace.
