An ISO 50001 Energy Management System is a systematic and process driven approach to controlling those aspects of your business that have a significant impact upon an organisation’s energy consumption. The system promotes efficient use of energy so as to keep both the environmental impact and costs under control.
THE PROCESS TO OBTAIN ISO 50001 CERTIFICATION
The ISO 50001 is best implemented in a business that already runs a robust ISO 9001 (Quality) and preferably ISO 14001 (Environmental) Management system. It is possible to implement ISO 50001 at the same time as ISO 14001, should your business have ISO 9001 only.
The energy standard specifies that an organisation must integrate an energy management system (enMS) within the organisation in conjunction with establishing and instigating an energy policy, objectives, targets, and action plans, which take into account legal requirements and information related to significant energy use. The energy standard is applicable to organisations both large and small, irrespective of geographical, cultural or social conditions. ISO 50001 has been structured to be aligned with other popular industry management system standards so it is possible integrate an energy management system (EnMS) with your existing management system(s). The company has operational experience in the EU, Africa and Asia in the energy management.
