What is ISO 50001?
Implementing an energy management system certified to ISO 50001 will help organizations to improve their energy performance, increase energy efficiency, minimize energy use, better manage energy consumption and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
ISO 50001 can be applied across an entire organization, or within specific industrial plants or operating facilities.
Published June 15, 2011, ISO 50001 provides a framework for organizations to establish, implement, maintain and improve an energy management system. The standard is targeted for broad applicability across any industry, and it is estimated that ISO 50001 could influence up to 60% of the world’s energy use.
The ISO 50001 Energy Management standard is based on common elements found in other ISO standards such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, assuring a high level of compatibility.
Benefits of ISO 50001 certification
ISO 50001 certification creates an internationally recognized framework for integrating energy efficiency into management and manufacturing practices throughout an organization and its supply chain. Most importantly, ISO 50001 certification creates opportunities for continual improvement in energy management and eases identification of ‘low hanging fruit’ that can often result in substantial costs savings and immediate returns in investment.
In addition, ISO 50001 certification enables:
• Better use of existing energy-consuming assets
• Benchmarking, measuring, documenting, and reporting energy intensity improvements and their projected impact on reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
• Transparency and communication of energy resource management
• Energy management best practices and good energy management behaviors
• Evaluating and prioritizing the implementation of new energy-efficient technologies
• A framework for promoting energy efficiency throughout the supply chain
• Energy management improvements in the context of GHG emission reduction projects
