Case study: 3M's road to ISO 50001, SEP certification
This case study outlines the enterprisewide approach taken by The 3M Company, a multinational manufacturer, to certify multiple sites to the Better Buildings Initiative's "Superior Energy Performance" program, which includes a certified ISO 50001 energy management system.
Deploying the program across six sites, 3M improved energy performance by an average of 7.3%, collectively saving the 636 billion Btu in primary energy and $3.6 million in energy costs. At five of the newly certified sites, 69% of the
energy cost savings resulted from operational changes with little capital expenditure.
