Exkal has obtained the ISO 50001 Certification – Energy Management System

It is a satisfaction for Ekxal to have recently obtained the ISO 50001 Energy Management certification and to continue reinforcing our commitment to the environment and sustainability.

ISO 50001 is the most widely used enterprise energy management standard in the world. The certification of an Energy Management System according to ISO 50001 helps organizations to implement an energy policy and to adequately manage the energy aspects derived from their activity, such as services, facilities, products, etc., which translates in real and quantifiable savings in energy costs in organizations.

ISO 50001 provides the necessary tools to identify the activities that consume the most energy and that represent “energy and economic leakage”. Once identified, organizations activate a plan of measures to minimize the energy consumption of their own facilities and systems in an integrated manner, while maximizing their energy efficiency. This contributes to an efficient and more sustainable use of energy, and gives maximum confidence in the ISO 50001 management system.


Exkal, one more year being one of the business examples #PorElClima

“Redesign the organization’s product line under sustainability criteria with the aim of developing a new range of state-of-the-art refrigerated cabinets that halve the energy consumption of current cabinets.”

With this statement, Exkal is once again one of the initiatives selected by 101 Business Examples of Actions #PorElClima 2021.

This 4th edition of the 101 Business Examples #PorElClima once again recognizes the commitment and climate ambition of the business sector, including small, medium and large companies, in order to make visible their specific initiatives to face the climate emergency and promote decarbonization actions.

Exkal’s objective is focused from the foundations of the circular economy, applying eco-design and so that most of its components can be reused once the useful life of the furniture ends. In general, it is sought that 87% of the weight of the furniture be recyclable and around 69% can be reused, and that they be products with ultra low energy consumption (reduction of 43% compared to the current most efficient class). In addition, the aim is to reduce CO2 emissions associated with the new furniture developed by around 50%.

The measures implemented to achieve this are:

  • Development of a complete range of furniture with natural refrigerants, which do not destroy the ozone layer and which are also found in abundance in nature.
  • Design of furniture that does not need defrosting (process of eliminating ice in the machines by means of heat) and that present temperature uniformity inside. This aspect not only reduces the consumption of the furniture, but also improves the conservation of food, reducing waste.
  • Reconfiguration of the deflectors and turbulence generators, reducing energy losses due to convection of the equipment, favoring air renewal and contributing to cabinet cooling.
  • Development of a new door closing system that minimizes energy losses due to opening and closing.
