What is ISO 50001?
An energy management system (EnMS) helps any organisation – small or large - manage their energy use more efficiently, meaning improved productivity. It involves developing and implementing an energy policy, setting achievable targets for energy use, and designing action plans to reach them and measure progress which may include implementing new energy-efficient technologies, reducing energy waste, or improving current processes to cut energy costs.

Why should it be considered?
ISO 50001 will give your organisation a well-known framework for developing an efficient energy management system and provides a set of requirements which will enable your organisation to:
- Develop an energy efficiency policy
- Set targets and objectives which will meet the policy
- Collect data to understand and make informed decisions about your organisation’s energy use
- Measure the results obtained
- Continually improve energy management
ISO 50001 is designed to help organisations to improve their energy performance through making better use of its energy assets. Improved energy efficiency can provide rapid benefit to your organisation by maximising use of energy resources as well as energy related assets which results in reduced costs, consumption and reduce environmental impact and enhance reputation.
What impact will it have?
Ensures legal compliance:
Implementing ISO 50001 gives your organisation a greater level of compliance to energy legislation as the standard requires you to conform with applicable legislation. This will reduce risk of incurring energy-related fines and prosecutions and lower insurance premiums – improving reputation and ensuring stakeholders’ trust.
Reduced energy usage:
An energy management system will help your organisation to identify how much energy is being used, where it is used and what energy is being wasted, ISO 50001 has the requirement that effective controls to manage energy usages need to be implemented and areas continual improvement will be easily identified meaning reduced waste and increased efficiency, cost savings due to improved energy management and more ethical and cost-effective procurement procedures.
Improved reputation and image:
A certified energy management system will result in reduced energy consumption and improved carbon footprint, meaning your environmental impact is minimised, resulting in more environmentally friendly processes. This shows proof to suppliers, customers, and stakeholders that your organisation is actively improving efficiency which will reflect well on the organisation resulting in an improved reputation and image compared to competitors who may not have the energy management system in place.
