ISO 50001

What is ISO 50001?

The ISO 50001 Energy Management System (EnMS) standard is a globally accepted framework for managing energy, providing technical and management strategies for organizations to increase energy efficiency, reduce costs, and improve environmental performance.
As a management standard it is similar in concept to ISO 9001 (Quality) and ISO 14001 (Environment). It provides for a formalised energy management system (an EnMS) based on continual improvement.

ISO 50001 can help you to:

  • Measure and monitor energy use to identify improvement opportunities
  • Improve overall performance to reduce energy consumption and spend
  • Identify and manage the risks related to future energy supply
  • Reduce carbon emissions to meet corporate and national reduction targets
  • Enhance the organization’s environmental credentials

If ISO 50001 is right for your organization and you implement it effectively it will improve your organization’s performance and profitability by locking in better control of your energy use.
John Pooley sits on the BSI committee that oversees energy management standards (ISO 50001, ISO 50002, ISO 50004, etc.). He has also worked with a range of organizations in the UK and North America supporting them in their journeys to certification and beyond.

Although John is a BSI committee member he has no commercial connection with the BSI and provides totally independent advice.
