Potentials for improvement with [sip]

Sartorius employees always have the option of entering their ideas simply and directly in the [sip] Improvement module. The respective department reviews and evaluates the suggestions according to effort and benefit in several self-defined dimensions. Finally, a [sip] project is reviewed and, if necessary, derived to implement the measure.

In addition to the potential to extract efficient measures from the minds of employees, the involvement of the entire staff also provides greater transparency and strongly motivates participation in shaping energy management throughout the company.

You have created a happy customer.

Energetic evaluation

The determined, energy-relevant data are compiled, compared and evaluated in [sip]. Finally, maintenance jobs with corresponding priorities are generated, which ensure integrated management that is transparent at all times in the implementation of the measures decided upon.

Counter monitoring is performed by means of annual testing of EMC meters. The cyclic IH actions, beyond the parameters of the energetic evaluation, always include the corresponding measurement protocols.

The Green Building Monitor ultimately provides feedback to employees and offers consumer tips in addition to raising awareness by displaying energy data.
