ISO 50001 is the internationally acknowledged Energy Management Systems (EnMS) standard.
ISO 50001 applies to any business– whatever the size, industry, or location to help them to manage their energy, including procurement and use. ISO 50001 is based on the management system model of continual improvement, also used for other well-known standards such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001.
Energy is a critical constituent in most organisations, and its usage can have significant cost implications. This standard will help businesses take a structured approach to measure and monitoring how much energy they use. This standard allows businesses to manage energy supply and consumption, including measurement, documentation and reporting. This Energy Management System helps an organisation tackle climate change and conserve resources by using energy more efficiently.
