What is ISO 50001?
ISO 50001 Energy Management System is a standard that provides a management framework to help your business identify what energy is being used and where. It will highlight if energy is being wasted and facilitate appropriate solutions to monitor and continually improve your energy management processes.Certification to ISO 50001…

- Enhances your reputation as an organisation which uses sustainable energy sources
Why gain certification to ISO 50001?
Many companies of all sizes have already implemented the energy management standard to improve their:
Commercial performance – reduced energy consumption, smaller carbon footprint – given today’s high energy prices, this can lead to significant cost savings.
Corporate profile – being compliant and having made a positive contribution to solving global problems such as climate change and the depletion of resources, certified organisations distinguish themselves from their competitors.
Go further than simply negotiating the lowest energy cost with your energy provider – take that next step and become ISO 50001 certified.

How does ISO 50001 differ from ISO 14001 and ISO 9001?
ISO 50001 specifically focuses on your organisation’s ability to manage energy sources and energy use. ISO 14001, the environmental management system standard, focuses on the environmental impact of your organisation. ISO 14001 includes energy topics but does not prescribe detailed specifications for an energy management system. ISO 9001, the quality management standard focuses on the customer and the needs of the customer. Together, these management systems allow an organisation to manage their business more strategically. ISO 50001 can be used in conjunction with other ISO management standards, to help identify further opportunities for energy savings, or as a stand-alone management system standard for organisations that are concerned about energy costs.
ISO 50001 Revision
In 2016, five years after the standard was first published, ISO 50001 has become the latest to enter the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) revisions process. Under the care of the ISO Technical Committee, ISO 50001 will follow the same revisions process as ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001. We currently expect ISO 50001:2019 is likely to be published in January 2019.
