ISO 50001:2011 Energy Management Systems

ISO 50001:2011 Energy Management Systems

The ISO 50001:2011 Energy Management Systems standard will establish a framework for industrial plants, commercial facilities or entire organizations to manage energy.  Targeting broad applicability across national economic sectors, the standard could influence up to 60 % of the world’s energy use.

Energy is critical to organisational operations and can be a major cost, whatever the activities.  An idea can be gained by considering the use of energy through the supply chain of a business, from raw materials through to recycling and thinking about not only the cost impact but the environmental impact.

ISO 50001:2011 Energy Management Systems will provide public and private sector organisations with management strategies to increase energy efficiency, reduce costs and improve energy performance.

The standard is intended to provide organisations with a recognised framework for integrating energy performance into their management practices and can be integrated with ISO 9001, 14001 and OHSAS 18001 due to its common elements.

    The ISO 9001 quality management standard can help you drive up efficiency, save money, satisfy more customers and win new business. One reason for ISO 9001 being so popular is because it can be implemented by organisations of any size or industry sector. Consequently, it is often a supply chain requirement as it can ensure continuity amongst suppliers.ISO 9001 certification is suited to organisations who wish to improve their management processes and demonstrate that their quality credentials are independently verified. This usually leads to improved client retention and helps them win new business, particularly when bidding for public sector work where ISO 9001 is usually expected.
