For many organisations that have implemented a formal Environmental Management System, energy is a significant part of this, both environmentally and financially. Legislation is changing all the time and is placing greater pressure on organisations. In addition, the cost of using high levels of energy can seriously impact the profitability of organisations.
If your organisation uses a lot of energy, or is obligated under the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), you can benefit from certification to ISO 50001:18.
What are the benefits of certification?
The Standard specifies requirements for an Energy Management System to identify significant areas of energy consumption and to target energy reductions. It provides a framework that will support you and your organisation to:
Develop a policy for more efficient energy use
Fix targets and objectives to enable you to work in line with the policy
Use data to help you to understand your energy use and to inform your decisions
Measure the results of your targets, objectives and data use
Review how well your policy is working
Continually improve your energy management
