ISO 50001 Energy Management

A globally recognised standard developed in response to increasing global awareness of energy performance, this standard offers a systematic approach to reduce energy costs, greenhouse gas emissions, and other related environmental impacts. ISO 50001:2011 focuses specifically on energy management and technical factors that drive energy efficiency and have an impact on the environment. It also focuses on the cost benefits of using utilities more efficiently, so the business case for it is clear-cut.

Effective energy management will not only help safeguard our future for generations to come, but can be the key to increased profitability and sustainability for your organisation.

What are the benefits of ISO 50001 Energy Management?

  • Improve visibility of energy usage which, in turn, will reduce energy related operational costs
  • Increase energy efficiency and support energy conservation
  • Demonstrate a commitment to sustainability
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • Improve use of existing energy assets
  • Refine energy procurement practices
  • Enable you to communicate about energy performance, internally, to the community and your customers
  • Assist in the evaluation, prioritising and implementation of new energy-efficient technologies
  • Provide a framework for promoting energy efficiency throughout the supply chain
  • Allow for more streamlined integration with other management systems such as quality, environmental, and occupational health and safety
  • Provide customers, suppliers, employees, and other stakeholders with evidence of the organisation’s commitment to improved energy performance, as well as compliance with applicable legislation and regulations

Is ISO 50001 right for you?

It is right for any organisation that wants to take control of their energy use and subsequent energy costs and if you already hold certification to ISO 14001 the basic framework for ISO 50001 is already in place.
