Reduce energy costs and combat climate change with ISO 50001

ISO 50001:2018, the international standard for energy management, provides a framework for organisations – both large and small to manage and reduce their energy use and associated costs. Implementing an effective EnMS that complies with ISO 50001 ensures that an organisation can:

  • Meet legal and contractual energy compliance requirements;
  • Save money by managing energy more efficiently;
  • Reduce its carbon footprint;
  • Increase energy security; and
  • Demonstrate a commitment to improved energy performance.

With energy security concerns rising and climate change an existential threat, consumers are increasingly aware of sustainability issues. This, coupled with greater regulation concerning energy matters, means ISO 50001 should be on every board’s agenda.

ISO 50001 – A strategic guide to establishing an energy management system provides a practical but strategic overview for leadership teams of what an EnMS is and how implementing one can bring added value to an organisation. It is not a ‘how-to’ book but details why starting the ‘do’ is a good strategic decision. A succinct guide to energy management for those new to the Standard, the book:

  • Explains how ISO 50001:2018 (which is based on ISO’s Annex SL) differs from the previous version of the Standard;
  • Provides readers with a greater understanding of what energy management is and how taking a risk-based approach can save money and improve brand reputation; and
  • Covers how ISO 50001 can be implemented and how the EnMS can be integrated with other management systems, such as an ISO 14001 EMS (environmental management system).
