There is arguably more pressure on businesses to conserve energy than ever. If you are looking for a way to improve your green credentials and reduce your energy usage and costs, ISO 50001 could be the solution. Keep reading to find out more about how ISO 50001 certification can benefit your organisation.
What exactly is ISO 50001?
ISO 50001 is an energy management standard which enables businesses to establish and implement energy management systems which help them to manage and cut energy use and costs. ISO 50001 can assist businesses of all sizes to cut costs whilst meeting their legislation requirements and becoming more sustainable. ISO 50001 is the global standard for Energy Management Systems. It provides frameworks that help companies to develop energy efficiency policies and set targets that will enable them to comply with these policies.
With ISO 50001, you can derive more value from your data to gain a deeper understanding of your energy usage and make better, more informed decisions. ISO 50001 also enables you to measure and analyse the results of your work and make continuous improvements to the way you manage energy.
Am I obliged to achieve ISO 50001 certification?
You are not legally obliged to achieve this certification. Nonetheless, it can help your business in many ways. Achieving ISO 50001 certification can boost your reputation, showing your customers and suppliers that you are committed to sustainability. Ultimately, whilst no company needs this certification to operate, many will achieve significantly greater success if they’re certified.
What do I need to do to achieve ISO 50001 certification?
If you want to achieve this certification, you need to implement the framework and develop and maintain procedures and processes that enable you to comply with the standard. You will need to comply with everything laid out in the standard and implement effective controls to manage your energy usage.
ISO 50001 certification can result in a substantial reduction in energy costs, help you identify areas where improvements can be made so you can continue operating at optimal energy efficiency and show you are complying with the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme. This is a mandatory scheme for businesses which meet ISO 50001 qualification criteria.
