What is ISO 50001?
The ISO 50001 Energy Management standard 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.

How does ISO 50001 differ from ISO 14001?
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 overall environmental impact of your organisation. ISO 14001 includes energy topics but does not prescribe detailed specifications for an energy management system.
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.
