Getting Hot Award in Mexico

Tyco Retail Solutions has achieved ISO 50001:2011 certification for its effort to conserve resources through the development of an energy management system at its Mexican manufacturing facility.

The facility has over 1,400 employees and is the first in Matamoros, Mexico to achieve the ISO 50001 certification which is a global standard that provides a framework of requirements designed to help businesses take an active role in managing energy consumption more responsibly, including taking advantage of renewable energy technology.

Certification provides third-party validation that organisations are reducing greenhouse gas emissions and working to meet environmental targets.

 Tyco’s facility in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico manufactures a range of anti-theft, security and fire protection products for retailers worldwide. It was built using recycled building materials and features solar roof panels which supply internal LED lighting for reduced power consumption, water efficient devices and a thermal reflective building coating.

The energy management system reportedly has provided a 47% improvement in energy efficiency over two and a half years. The facility has over 1,400 employees following the energy policy with the highest commitment. 

“This certification builds on our continued effort to drive green retailing and advance overall corporate environmental responsibility,” said Gopal Chandramowle, Senior Director, Global Supply Chain & Manufacturing, Tyco Retail Solutions.  

The latest certification follows other energy efficiency awards including a 2015 INDEX Environmental Award and Tyco’s listing in the Newsweek U.S. Green Rankings 2015.
