ISO 50001: Energy Management
Manage energy and cut costs and emissions with ISO 50001 certification
ISO 50001 Challenge
Energy conservation has grown to be a key focus for businesses as saving energy translates to cutting down on operational costs.
Reduced energy consumption also signifies a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and demonstrates a greater concern for natural resources. These are solid strategies for companies wanting to put them into action to contribute to sustainable development.
By implementing the ISO 50001 Management System, industries that are heavily dependent on energy and other related sectors will be able to realize significant improvement in their energy consumption. This is achieved through energy optimization and by taking advantage of more renewable energy sources.
What are Energy Management Systems (EnMS) and their payback?
Management Systems provide a means for continuous improvement in the areas of Quality, Safety and Environment. This concept has now been put into place to improve the use of energy.
ISO 50001 is the new global standard for the management of energy with requirements for the following:
• Enforcing an energy policy with straightforward objectives to enhance energy efficiency.
• Determining a baseline of energy use as well as identifying vital areas and gaining an understanding of influencing factors regarding its use.
• Setting up periodic forecasts of energy demands to allow for more clarity when planning investments and improvements.
• Taking energy consumption into consideration during the decision-making process regarding design and procurement of all equipment, services and raw materials.
ISO 50001 can be simply integrated into an existing Safety, Quality and/or Environment Management System. This can be achieved for any type of organization with the goal of monitoring and improving their energy efficiency. It is also possible to have multiple management systems audited at one time to optimize the cost of the project.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
ISO 14001 or ISO 50001?
While both standards result in similar outcomes of a reduced environmental impact, they have varying objectives, requirements, paths and benefits.
The ISO 14001 regards energy as a factor in the consumption of natural resources and analyzes environmental impact in an effort to manage the effect on the environment.
The ISO 50001 places more emphasis on optimizing consumption to achieve financial savings. An organization can attain the ISO 50001 certification without having an ISO 14001 management system in place.
