Energy Management: improve efficiency with ISO 50001 Certification
ISO 50001, a universal framework to manage energy costs and cut greenhouse gas emissions
Energy has become a key metric for companies. Saving energy means saving operational costs.
Energy consumption also implies reducing greenhouse gas emissions and demonstrating greater care for natural resources.
ISO 50001 is expected to impact 60% of global energy consumption
§ ISO 50001 is an internationally recognized energy management system (EnMS) standard published by ISO (International Organization of Standardization) § Energy Management Systems offer a structured and comprehensive approach for improving energy efficiency § EnMS Audits will enable improvement of energy management, detect potential savings and will serve as a management milestone
Benefits of introducing an Energy Management System
By implementing the ISO 50001 management system, companies can gain a real competitive advantage and achieve significant savings.
Energy intense industries and other sectors can also see significant improvement in their energy use, optimizing consumption and using more renewable energies:
– Objective and exhaustive vision on energy uses and consumption
– Projection of future consumption and list of savings opportunities
– Hierarchy of energy uses to focus effort
– Establish a baseline and closely monitor operations
– Motivational lever for staff
– Reporting tool for stakeholders
– Proof of commitment for sustainability
SO 50001 can be easily integrated into existing Quality, Safety, and/or Environment Management Systems, for all types of organizations aiming to monitor and improve their energy efficiency.
Several management systems can be audited simultaneously during the same audit, optimizing costs.
ISO 50001 CHALLENGE
Energy has become a key metric for companies: saving energy means saving operational costs.
Energy consumption also implies reducing greenhouse gas emissions and demonstrating greater care for natural resources. These are tangible actions for companies looking to enforce and contribute to sustainable development.
With the implementation of ISO 50001 management system, energy intense industries and other sectors can achieve significant improvement in their energy use, optimizing their consumption and using more renewable energy.
WHAT ARE ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS (ENMS) AND THEIR PAYBACK?
Management Systems provide continuous improvement in the fields of Quality, Environment and Safety. This concept has now been applied to improve energy use.
ISO 50001 is the new global standard for Energy Management with requirements for:
§ Establishing an energy policy with concrete objectives to improve energy efficiency;
§ Setting a baseline of energy uses, identifying critical areas and understanding influential elements on energy use;
§ Maintaining a periodic forecast of energy use, allowing visibility to plan investments and improvements;
§ Considering energy consumption in the decision process for design and procurement of all equipment, raw materials or services.
ISO 50001 can be easily integrated into existing Quality, Safety and/or Environment Management Systems, for all types of organizations aiming to monitor and improve their energy efficiency.
Several management systems can be audited during the same audit, optimizing costs.

ISO 14001 or ISO 50001?
ISO 14001 addresses energy as part of the use of natural resources and environmental impact, among requirements to manage environmental impact.Both standards have a similar result: reduced environmental impact, yet they have different objectives, paths, requirements and benefits.
ISO 50001 is focused more on the optimization of consumption leading to financial savings. An organization can be certified to ISO 50001 without having an ISO 14001 management system.
