Development of Energy Management System (EnMS) schemes and related guide-lines.
Starting in 2003, several systematic schemes for an energy management where developed first for the German government and later on an own research basis. Parallel to the start of interna-tional standardization on energy management schemes, implementation guidelines for industry where developed and became a standard for the most energy consuming industries in 2009. Be-sides the process of standardisation, the efficient implementation for a maximum degree of eco-nomic advantages for users is of most interest.
Measuring the sustainability orientation of organisations, helping them to improve continuously and efficiently SD-Management and -Performance.
There is no absolute “Standard for Sustainability” as this concept is based on an approach, incor-porating numerous cultural backgrounds, social positions and attitudes in society. Institutions, especially big businesses, increasingly demand such, as they want to efficiently guide their proc-ess of improvement. Employing parts of the EFQM-Model of the European Foundation of Quality Management and the so called “Deming Cycle”, an instrument is under development, measuring the “sustainability performance” from 0 to 1000 units (points). It is currently being tested in dif-ferent companies. Further an adoption of the sustainability check to efficiently verify CSR- and Sustainability Reports is under construction.
The transformation of traditional economy into a more and more carbon related economy.
The climate change puts more and more attention on the emission of gaseous carbonates espe-cially from combustion but also from agriculture. “Emission trading” has accordingly become a worldwide business involving annually already transactions of billions of euros. This increasingly leads to attempts to measure the so called “Company Carbon Footprint” (CCF) of an organisation and its activities, or the CO2 emissions related to the production and use of a product described as “Product Carbon Footprint” (PCF). Effects that are detected within those surveys demand an increasing management and control focussing on the “carbon inventory” often referred to as CO2 balance sheet of a company, like the monetary balance sheet.
