The rising costs of energy, the need to handle resources responsibly and the increase of global trade all require new and concrete approaches to energy usage. In view of demands for climate protection, carbon accounting, greenhouse gas and financial grant incentives, implementation of a sustainable energy management system will help improve your bottom line.
The Energy Management Standard, ISO 50001:2011 was released on June 15, 2011. The standard aims to help organizations establish the systems and processes to improve their energy performance, including efficiency and consumption. The EnMS is applicable to all types of organizations and is based on the ISO approach for quality (ISO 9001) and the environment (ISO 14001) using the familiar plan-do-act-check model.
ISO 50001 is designed to help companies enhance their use of energy-consuming assets, evaluate and prioritize the implementation of energy-efficient technology, and promote efficiency throughout the supply chain.
The new standard specifies requirements for measurement, documentation and reporting, equipment design and procurement processes. It does not prescribe specific performance criteria, though it does require participating companies to commit to continual energy performance improvements.
