ISO 50001 - Overview

ISO 50001 can be used by any business, large or small and helps organisations implement a flexible and robust energy management system (EnMS). The international standard outlines energy management practices that not only save your organisation money but sustains those savings over time. Organisations that make a commitment to improvement by following the principles of good management frequently report achieving significant energy savings often without investment in new technology.

There are also a number of indirect benefits that organisations receive from achieving ISO 50001 certification which vary from industry to industry and with the type of improvements made. Typical examples include reduced waste production, compliance with applicable legal requirements, improved control of operations leading to improved productivity and improved comfort levels in buildings.

Direct Benefits

reduced cost of energy consumption

reduced environmental impact of operations through energy savings and reductions in CO2

improved operational performance of equipment

Indirect Benefits

improves data accuracy and control of energy consumption

compliance with applicable legal requirements

increased labour efficiencies and delivery of core offerings


What is ISO 50001?

ISO 50001 is based on the management system model of continual improvement. The Plan, Do, Check, Act (PDCA) cycle is the operating cycle of ISO management standards used for other well-known standards such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001. The idea behind an EnMS is to have a systematic approach that will be sustainable and nurture a culture of continuous improvement.
