AESG in key ISO energy consultancy deal
Dubai, October 22, 2012
Dubai-based Alabbar Energy Sustainable Group (AESG) said it has signed an agreement with top management systems firm Vincotte to jointly provide consultancy and implementation services for the new ISO 50001 standard for energy management.
A leading energy and sustainability consultancy in the Middle East, AESG said the partnership enables the companies to be among the first in the region to offer services for the new ISO standards, with clients benefiting from the combined expertise in both the technical and management systems aspects of energy management.
AESG has seen an increasing environmental awareness in the Middle East and believes the ISO standard will greatly help organizations achieve their sustainability goals.
“The ISO 50001 Standard is something we truly believe in, since at its core it is a robust tool for managing energy costs. It provides direct and tangible benefits to companies trying to reduce operational expenses,” remarked Saeed Alabbar, the director at AESG.
“The partnership between AESG and Vincotte was an easy decision for both firms as our organizations are very much aligned in their philosophies of delivering exceptional quality to the Clients. We look forward to working together, not only to assist our clients in reducing their energy bills, but also to bring down the carbon footprint of the region,” Alabbar added.
ISO 50001 is based on the ISO management system model and is compatible with the ISO 9001 Standard for Quality Management and ISO 14001 Standard for Environmental Management, both of which are already widely followed in the Middle East.
It provides a ‘Plan-Do-Check-Act’ process framework for organizations of all types, be it public sector, governmental, large enterprises, or SME businesses across all industry verticals, to drive down energy consumption and subsequently lower costs. Through adoption of the standard, organizations can stand to significantly reduce their energy consumption.
Wael Kamal, the GM of Vincotte International Middle East, said the company has long been providing organizations across the globe with the assistance they require to achieve industry standards such as those specified by ISO.
"The key to our success in the Middle East has been our technical expertise and emphasis on quality of service. AESG has built a name for itself on these same values and we believe that this partnership will help us provide the greatest benefit to our clients," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
