READING, PA — EnerSys (NYSE: ENS) has been honored with the distinguished Energy Efficiency Initiative of the Year award as part of Environmental Finance’s Sustainable Company Awards. The recognition was given specifically for implementation of the EnerSys Operating System (EOS), a lean management program designed to identify, reduce, or eliminate excess waste and associated costs across its operations.
The Environmental Finance Sustainable Company Awards recognize leading companies across all industries that are transforming their business practices to pave the way toward a net-zero future. The Energy Efficiency Initiative of the Year award recognizes companies that have created and utilized groundbreaking energy-efficient technologies, strategies, or business models to help reduce energy waste across any aspect of a business, from buildings and manufacturing, to transport and infrastructure.
Patrice Baumann, Chief Integrated Supply Chain Officer at EnerSys, expressed the company’s pride in receiving the award, stating, “We are honored to be recognized for the EnerSys Operating System (EOS), our lean management program. The implementation of EOS has created a culture of continuous improvement and waste reduction that has had a significant positive impact on our organization.”
A judging panel consisting of over 40 investors and industry experts chosen for their knowledge, objectivity and credibility, along with the Environmental Finance editorial team, recognized EnerSys for this award specifically for the implementation of the EnerSys Operating System (EOS), which is a clear demonstration of the company’s commitment to sustainability and efficiency. Since the implementation of EOS in 2017, the EOS program has yielded remarkable results across various facets of the EnerSys operations, including scrap, water, gas, and cardboard reduction. The EOS program was also awarded the Better Practice Award from the U.S. Department of Energy Better Plants Program earlier this year.
