Using energy efficiently helps companies save money as well as helping to conserve resources and tackle climate change. ISO 50001 supports businesses in all sectors to use energy more efficiently through the development of an energy management system (EnMS)

ISO 50001:2011 – Energy Management System

ISO 50001 is based on the management system model of continual improvement also used for other well known standards such as ISO9001 or ISO14001. This makes it easier for businesses to integrate energy management into their overall efforts to improve quality and environmental management.

ISO 50001:2011 provides a framework of requirements for organizations to:

  • Develop a policy for more efficient use of energy
  • Fix targets and objectives to meet the policy
  • Use data to better understand and make decisions about energy use
  • Measure the results
  • Review how well the policy works, and
  • Continually improve energy management

Certification to ISO 50001

Like other ISO management system standards; certification to ISO 50001 is possible but not obligatory. Some organizations decide to implement the standard solely for the benefits it provides. Others decide to get certified to it to demonstrate to external parties they have implemented an energy management system.
