Energy Management System

ISO 50001 certificates

(COFRAC management systems certification accreditation n°4-0006, scopes available on www.cofrac.fr)

ISO 50001:2011 relates to energy management and is a voluntary, internationally recognised standard, which outlines the requirements for an energy management system (EnMS). The structure of this standard is similar to ISO 14001 and ISO 9001, which should support implementation, as well as its integration into existing management systems.

ISO 50001 is relevant to organisations of all shapes and sizes but is of particular interest to those operating in energy intensive environments.

Key requirements:

  • Continual improvement of energy performance
  • Creation of an energy policy
  • Prioritisation of issues affecting energy use and efficiency
  • Supporting the reduction of costs and Green House Gas (GHG) emissions by setting objectives and targets for the identification of saving opportunities
  • Formalising control systems and monitoring processes, Plan, Do, Check, Act (PDCA) approach
  • Evaluation of compliance with legal and other requirements
  • Systematic review of the EnMS by top management
  • Assists organisations in making better use of existing energy consuming assets

Benefits for your company:

  • Promotes a focus on energy as a valuable and costly resource
  • Improves and drives energy performance and efficiency – improves the way energy is managed
  • Demonstrates energy management best practises to stakeholders and others
  • Provides a better understanding of energy use
  • More conscious energy design and procurement practices
  • Straightforward integration with other management systems, i.e. ISO 9001 & 14001 as it has common elements across the management system standards
  • Maximises use of energy sources and energy related assets – could reduce energy cost and consumption
  • Reduces GHG emissions and other environmental impacts
  • Supports the growing demand within industry to gain international recognition
