AUO is the first manufacturer in the world to obtain ISO 50001 Certification for Manufacturing Facilities

Following the publishing of ISO 50001 standard for energy management by International Organization for Standardization (ISO) on June 15, AUO announced that its G8.5 facility in Central Taiwan Science Park has passed ISO 50001 standard for energy management. AUO is the first manufacturer in the world, as well the first company in Taiwan, to have obtained this certification. Meanwhile, AUO’s TV module plant in Suzhou, China has also passed the evaluation. AUO’s next step is to apply this energy management system to all its global production sites.

ISO 50001 is developed by the ISO/PC 242 energy management project committee of International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The standard establishes a framework for industrial plants or commercial facilities to manage energy, so that energy efficiency increases, costs are reduced and less impact is made on the environment.
