Press Releases NürnbergMesse
* NürnbergMesse is first exhibition company audited to ISO 50001
* Energy management distinguished by extensive strategy
N?rnbergMesse is the first exhibition company to be certified to ISO 50001. For Dr. Roland Fleck and Peter Ottmann, CEOs of N?rnbergMesse, this is another major step on the way to the company achieving its set energy targets: “We have set ourselves a really high standard with the energy campaign. After DGNB certification and the introduction of electromobility, the fact that our energy management system has now been certified to ISO 50001 as the first ever for an exhibition company is a veritable accolade!” The basis for the certification is an in-house energy management system previously implemented by a separate “energy team”.
Taking hall 3A into operation at the beginning of 2014 increased the exhibition area on the N?rnbergMesse site to currently 170,000 m?
A large package of measures has been assembled that covers items like systematically recording and processing energy data, optimizing lighting systems, reducing heat consumption or significantly increasing the share of renewable energy. The extensive auditing process calls for demanding logistic, technical and legal quality standards if the coveted ISO certification is to be achieved at the end. “When Peter Ottmann and I started as CEOs of N?rnbergMesse in 2011, we also wanted to make our own mark in the energy segment. I’m pleased to say that we can now harvest the first fruit from the seeds sown three years ago,” says Dr. Roland Fleck. For CEO colleague Peter Ottmann, the company’s energy campaign fits in 1:1 with the orientation of the N?rnbergMesse programme: “We have a powerful portfolio of energy events and N?rnbergMesse is also traditionally strong in sustainability matters. Our energy campaign is an excellent link between the two segments – and today’s ISO certification is the icing on the cake.”
