What is ISO 50001?
ISO 50001 is the international standard for energy management systems, specifying what is required by companies in order to improve and maintain their Energy Management System (EnMS) for a building. This allows organisations to introduce an energy management system when trying to improve quality and environmental management.
This framework requires organisations to:
- Develop a policy for more efficient use of energy
- Fix targets and objectives to meet the policy
- Use data to better understand and make decisions concerning energy use and consumption
- Measure the results
- Review the effectiveness of the policy
- Continually improve energy management
- Achieve external certification of your systems
By Achieving the ISO 50001 standard, this enables your business to continually reduce energy use, energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions.

What are the benefits of ISO 50001?
Although certification is not obligatory, many organisations decide to implement this standard due to the various benefits it provides. If an organisation achieves the ISO 50001 standards, not only will this save them energy and money, but it will also exempt the company from carrying out any mandatory energy audits under the new ESOS legislation. In particular, the scheme reduces greenhouse gas emissions, improving the energy efficiency and sustainability of a property.
