Gyproc, the market leader in plasterboard and plaster, with a plant in Kingscourt, Co.

The EN 16001 was awarded by Certification Europe which also carried out the first EN 16001 certification globally and has been leading the way in energy management.

John Ryan, Commercial Director with Certification Europe, pointed out “Operating to EN 16001 will provide Gyproc with a wide range of benefits.  In addition to cost savings, observance of EN 16001 will reduce greenhouse gas emissions, carbon footprint and increase energy awareness among staff leading to greater efficiencies and informed decision making processes”.
