ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems

ISO 50001 is a global standard for organisations looking to improve their energy management. It provides an internationally recognised framework for implementing an energy management system (EnMS), helping organisations improve energy efficiency and reduce their environmental impact.

What is ISO 50001?

ISO 50001 energy management system (EnMS) certification provides a framework for establishing energy management best practices to help organisations to improve their energy performance, including energy efficiency, use, and consumption. It is especially important following increased customer interest in net zero and carbon emissions following COP26. The standard enables organisations to demonstrate their commitment to improving energy efficiency and to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions: Establish frameworks for maintaining and building energy and cost savings. Support organisational efforts to reduce energy consumption. Help organisations migrate to net zero through reduced carbon emissions. Deliver cross-site energy efficiencies and effectively monitor energy use. Create a sustainable organisational culture.

What are the benefits of ISO 50001?

With customer and business focus on energy efficiency, carbon emissions, and net zero, stakeholders, shareholders, and customers are looking to organisations to actively monitor, control, and reduce energy usage. In addition to enhanced reputation, more efficient energy usage can reduce costs and reduce the risks of energy price spikes and supply interruption.

ISO 50001 certification allows organisations to:

» Reduce energy usage by up 10% within the first 12 months.

» Reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and carbon footprint.

» Assist in compliance with current and future voluntary or mandatory energy efficiency targets.

» Improved corporate image and reputation among customers, clients and stakeholders.

» Inform decision-making processes from system design through to operation and maintenance.

» Increase energy awareness among staff members at all levels.

» Improve operational efficiencies and maintenance practices. There are over 19,000 active ISO 50001 certifications in 2020 worldwide, according to The ISO Survey.

How to become ISO 50001 certified

To be certified, your organisation must conform to the ISO 50001 management standard and implement an energy management system (EnMS). This is a framework that details the requirements and implementation of an energy management system that demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to improving its energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. We’ve certified hundreds of organisations to ISO standards, including Diageo, Greenstar and Liverpool Victoria. Certification Europe also provides ISO training. Contact our team to find out more. If your organisation meets the requirements, Certification Europe issues an official certificate. Your organisation can use its ISO 50001 certification status in marketing and promotional materials.

The Certification Journey

Stage One

The initial assessment determines if the mandatory requirements of the standard are being met and if the management system is capable of proceeding to Stage 2.

Recommendation for Certification

At this point in the process we review any corrective actions taken to address findings raised at Stage 1 & 2. Certification may be recommended.

Certification Achieved

Successful certification is communicated to the client. Certificates are issued.

Stage Two

The second assessment determines the effectiveness of the system, and seeks to confirm that the management system is implemented and operational.

Certification Review & Decision

The organisations files are reviewed by an independent and impartial panel and the certification decision is made.
