NLEX ISO Certification

North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Corporation announced that it has earned the ISO 50001:2018 certification. 

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Which institution awarded NLEX with the ISO certification?

    The institution that gave NLEX its new certification is DQS Certification Philippines.
  • How much carbon dioxide equivalent has NLEX reduced in 2023?

    Per the toll road company, it reduced 154 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions in its operations in 2023.
  • Given to institutions that attained excellent energy management, the said certification — awarded by DQS Certification Philippines — proved the tollway company’s commitment to promoting energy sustainability.

    Examples of NLEX Corporation’s initiatives include the use of solar power in some of its toll plazas, closed-circuit television cameras, and roadway lighting. It also installed motion-sensor lights in its offices in Caloocan City, Valenzuela City, Bulacan, and Pampanga.

    “As we are now challenged regarding the effective and efficient use of energy, NLEX once again proved their commitment and dedication in making a positive impact to the environment through the successful certification of Energy Management System (ISO 50001). The company has shown commendable programs and initiatives that will surely inspire and influence other organizations and individuals to adapt the same practices and will eventually navigate them to taking the path of greener living,” said DQS Managing Director Romeo Zamora.

    In 2023, NLEX Corporation successfully reduced 154 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions in its operations. 

    The toll road firm noted that it is eager to increase this further, as three of its technical shelters for its telecoms systems are now being powered by a hybrid system of solar energy and the traditional grid. 

    Moreover, solar powered roofing systems will also be installed in their Balintawak office by the third quarter of 2024 to minimize electric consumption in the said location.

    “While we aim for convenience, innovation, and modernization for our infrastructure and business, we believe that this should not be at the expense of the environment. More than a road, we want NLEX to be the leader of sustainable infrastructure in the country. We will continue to implement projects that will make a positive impact in the environment so that we will be able to leave a greener NLEX for the future generation,” stated NLEX Corporation President and General Manager J. Luigi Bautista.

    Prior to its ISO 50001 certification, tollway company had secured and maintained accreditation for four other ISO standards namely ISO 39001:2012 Road Traffic Safety Management System (RTSMS), ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management System), ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Management System) and ISO 45001: 2018 (Occupational Health and Safety Management System).
