ISO 50001 Certification

Optimize energy performance and promote efficient energy management

The Energy Management System Standard

ISO 50001:2018 is an international energy management system (EnMS) standard that gives organizations a tool to systematically optimize energy performance and promote more efficient energy management. The standard's framework is compatible with the ISO 14001 environmental management standard, so organizations with ISO 14001 certification will find it easy to gain ISO 50001 certification.

ISO 50001 provides a framework of requirements for organizations to:

  • Develop an effective policy for the efficient use of energy.
  • Fix existing targets and objectives in order to meet the policy.
  • Identify, measure, monitor and analyze the key factors of operations affecting energy performance.
  • Utilize data in order to better understand and make informed decisions.
  • Measure the results to review how effective the policy has been.
  • Continuously improve the energy management system.

Benefits of ISO 50001 Certification 

Certification offers measurable cost benefits. It allows your business to achieve greater transparency and promotes best practice in energy management by demonstrating how energy is consumed throughout your value chain. The energy management system (EnMS) framework is widely known to improve bottom lines through systematic improvements in energy efficiency and consumption while enhancing a company's reputation and environmental performance.
