ENOC becomes first energy company to win the SPLC award for sustainable business practices
The group's energy & resource management (E&RM) policy introduced in 2008 generated savings of $3.05mn in 2018
ENOC Group is the world’s first energy company to have won the Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council (SPLC) Award in Portland, USA at the 2019 SPLC Summit organised by the US based not-for-profit organisation.
The group was awarded under the ‘Sustainable Purchasing Business Case Leadership’ category for showcasing its business value generated by adopting sustainability principles in its operation as well as implementing sustainable purchasing standards.
HE Saif Humaid Al Falasi, group chief executive officer of ENOC, said: “The industry has seen a huge shift towards green marketing and procurement efforts, largely driven by conscious consumers who understand the impact and benefits of clean energy offerings. As a result, we remain committed to embedding sustainable practices at the core of our operations across the entire energy value chain.”
ENOC Group has led various initiatives to enhance sustainable purchasing to promote energy efficiency across the group. In 2016, ENOC appointed a dedicated ‘green procurement officer’ to streamline procurement and purchasing processes.
It also adopted the purchase and design energy standard, which played a role in standardising energy consumption for equipment purchased by the group. This ensures that ENOC assets consume less energy for longer periods and also contributes to enhanced operational efficiency. The energy & resource management (E&RM) policy introduced in 2008 generated savings of $3.05mn in 2018.
