Uzmar Shipyard: The first Turkish shipyard certified to ISO 50001 by Lloyd's Register
UZMAR announced that it has successfully demonstrated conformance to its energy management program against the requirements of the standard. UZMAR became the first Turkish Shipyard to receive ISO 50001 certification by Lloyd’s Register.
“ISO 50001 certification on energy management systems is a direct reflection of the environmental commitment of our corporate culture,” said Noyan Altug, UZMAR CEO.
UZMAR has long recognized the value and importance of strong management systems. UZMAR was previously certified to ISO 14001 environmental and ISO 9001 quality standards.
“All levels of our business are committed to lean principles and implementing new energy-saving methods; congratulations to all UZMAR employees for their active engagement throughout our entire energy reduction journey,” Altug stated.
“Our energy reduction measures at UZMAR have also been positively received by visitors to the shipyard. They are aware that their ships are fuel-efficient, and they can see how environmental sensitivity is woven into the UZMAR culture and shipbuilding process.” Altug said.
This achievement is yet another validation of the robustness of UZMAR's environmental management system, and a reaffirmation of the company's belief that an effective management system enables continual improvement.
