ISO 50001

What is ISO 50001?

ISO 50001 is the international standard for energy management systems. It validates best practice and introduces strategies which help to improve efficiency, reduce costs and emissions, and underlines your commitment to energy performance improvement.

Why was it introduced?

The standard follows a systematic approach and enables organisations to establish processes to improve energy performance, efficiency and consumption. It demonstrates your commitment to continual improvement in energy management and offers associated benefits for participants.

What are the benefits?

ISO 50001 certification can significantly reduce costs for organisations which choose to implement the standard. Costs reductions can be in the region of 10% on total energy spend, which especially for larger consumers can amount to significant savings and operational efficiencies.

Who needs to comply?

The certification is not a mandatory legislative requirement. However, it introduces a framework which aids compliance with other compulsory initiatives required for certain organisations in the UK, such as the ESOS Energy Savings and Opportunities Scheme.
It is suitable for and used by both large and small organisations across the world to implement strategies which reduce the use of energy and the associated costs this comes with.
