The implementation of ISO 50001 (Energy Management System / “EMS”) was the goal of Aquiris, a subsidiary of the Veolia international group, as a major stakeholder in sustainable development in Brussels. The Aquiris wastewater treatment plant treats wastewater from the Brussels-Capital Region and the Flemish Woluwe basin. Aquiris has been involved for a long time in a process for controlling its energy consumption, and its aim was to structure its approach more effectively while raising awareness among all the company’s employees of the importance of energy issues and the part they play in managing them.
