What is ISO 50001?
ISO 50001 will provide public and private sector organizations with management strategies to increase energy efficiency, reduce costs, and improve energy performance. The standard was made available on the June 15th, 2011. The ISO 50001 standard is based on the common elements found in all of the ISO management systems, assuring a high level of compatibility with ISO 9001 (quality management)and ISO 14001 (environmental management). Furthermore, ISO 50001 is designed to help companies make better use of their energy assets, evaluate, and prioritize the implementation of energy-efficient technology, and promote efficiency throughout the supply chain. ISO 50001 stresses the involvement of executive leadership, saying that top management must establish, implement, and maintain an energy policy.

Why seek ISO 50001 certification?
Corporations cannot regulate energy prices, government policies, or the world-wide economy, but they can adjust how they oversee energy use through the implementation of ISO 50001. According to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ISO 50001 could influence 60% of the world’s energy use. Energy is the third-largest expense for businesses -after employees and real estate- representing an average of 19% of total expenses and accounts for 75% of a company’s carbon footprint. Improved energy performance can provide immediate benefits for a company by enhancing the use of its energy sources and energy-related assets, thus lowering both energy expenditure and utilization.
