ISO 50001 - Overview

How it works
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.
