READING, Pa., April 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnerSys (NYSE: ENS)
EnerSys®, the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, has been awarded the Better Practice Award from the U.S. Department of Energy Better Plants Program for the implementation of the EnerSys Operating System (EOS) Lean Management program.
The EOS program is a Lean Management initiative designed to identify, reduce, or eliminate waste within EnerSys’s operations. The program was implemented using a framework for continuous improvement to do the right things for its employees, customers and shareholders.
By using the EOS program, EnerSys plants across the globe have been able to more efficiently implement safety, health, environmental, quality and sustainability improvements, including scrap, water and gas reductions, energy savings and more.
The Better Practice Award is given annually to partners of the Better Plants Initiative who demonstrate innovative and industry-leading accomplishments in decarbonization, energy and water efficiency, or waste reduction. The award recognizes partners for implementing and promoting practices, principles, and procedures broadly within a portfolio or series of buildings or plants.
The award criteria include magnitude, replicability, innovation, and additional program benefits, such as the impact on occupant health and wellness, workforce development, diversity, equity, and inclusion, community engagement, and benefits to underserved communities.
"EnerSys is proud to be recognized for our EOS Lean Management program," said Patrice Baumann, Senior Vice President of Global Operations and Supply Chain. "Our program has created a culture of continuous improvement and waste reduction that has had a significant positive impact on our organization. We are grateful for this recognition and will continue to strive for excellence in all that we do."
The Better Buildings Initiative is a program of the U.S. Department of Energy that works with partners to promote energy efficiency in buildings and industrial facilities. The Better Practice Awards are an important part of the initiative, recognizing partners who demonstrate leadership and innovation in energy efficiency and sustainability.
“Partners in the Better Plants Challenge are sharing their success and innovation to accelerate their energy efficiency. The Better Practice awards highlight unique efforts to make meaningful headway in reducing energy, water, waste and greenhouse gas emissions,” said Carolyn Snyder, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency at the U.S. Department of Energy.
