Epwin Windows Systems has won the BPF Energy Award 2017 for the facility BPF/F00150 within the Climate Change Agreement. The award was given in recognition of the company’s ‘considerable ongoing commitment’ to energy reduction throughout its Telford extrusion plant, where all main profile systems are produced.
In previous years the award was said to have been solely based around improvement in the Climate Change Agreement (CCA) Specific Energy Consumption (SEC). However, for the past two years the award has reportedly had a bias towards an absolute energy reduction criterion at facility level.
According to Epwin, it is a mark of success of the major investment that it has made during 2015/2016 in energy reduction in its manufacturing process.
The award was presented by the president of the British Plastics Federation on 12 October at the BPF annual dinner, which was held at the Lancaster Hotel, London and attended by 515 people from across the plastics industry.
Epwin Window Systems’ divisional operations director, Andy Bevan, commented: “We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded the BPF Energy Award 2017 for the facility BPF/F00150 within the Climate Change Agreement. This award can be given to any business in the plastics industry sector so to win it is a significant achievement. As a business, we are totally committed to reducing our carbon footprint across all areas of the business, particularly our manufacturing processes. We look forward to continuing to drive forward in our commitment.”
