ISO50001 EnMS

The International Standards Authority (ISO) has identified energy management as a priority area meriting the development and promotion of International Standards. Effective energy management is a priority focus because of the significant potential to save energy and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions worldwide.

The Purpose of ISO 50001

ISO 50001 is intended to provide organizations with a recognized framework for integrating energy performance, including use & consumption, into their management practices.

The Goals of ISO 50001

  • Assist organizations in making better use of their existing energy-consuming assets
  • Create transparency and facilitate communication on the management of energy resources
  • Promote energy management best practices and reinforce good energy management behaviours
  • Assist facilities in evaluating and prioritizing the implementation of new energy-efficient technologies
  • Provide a framework for promoting energy efficiency throughout the supply chain
  • Facilitate energy management improvements for greenhouse gas emission reduction projects
  • Allow integration with other organizational management systems such as environmental, and health and safety.

To Whom it Applies

ISO 50001 is suitable for any organization – whatever your size, sector or geographical location. It is particularly relevant if you operate in an energy intensive industry or one facing GHG emissions regulation or legislation.
