The internationally recognised certification according to ISO 50001 by the independent, International Standardisation Organisation (ISO) was awarded to Lidl Cyprus by technical experts of the company DEKRA, for the successful introduction of an efficient energy management system. It certified a total of 18 stores, 1 warehouse and 1 administration building. Internationally, Lidl already meets the international standard in 28 countries.

Maintaining an energy management system and gradually certifying Lidl subsidiaries has the advantage of cost savings and long-term environmental protection. The goal of ISO 50001 is the continuous improvement of the company's energy efficiency through measures, infrastructure and procedures aimed at increasing energy efficiency and optimising energy use.

Examples of specific measures implemented by Lidl are the use of LED lighting, smart heating and air conditioning technology through BMS system, the training of staff in conscious energy consumption, the installation of photovoltaic systems, the installation of charging stations for electric vehicles, the use of natural refrigerant in refrigeration facilities in warehouse and stores , telemetry of energy consumption etc.

Through the energy management procedures applied in Lidl Cyprus, transparency of all energy flows in the company is created and it is possible to reveal cost saving possibilities in its stores, warehouses and administration buildings. This leads to an increase in energy efficiency and consequently to its profitability.

Since 2013, all Lidl subsidiaries have received ISO 50001 certification. Thus, in total, 179 warehouses and 24 administration buildings have been certified according to ISO 50001: 11306 stores, 179 warehouses and 24 administration buildings.
