Why is ISO 50001 good for you? And what you should be aware of when implementing it!
Energy comes in many forms including electricity, gas, oil and steam and is a resource used by organisations worldwide.
Reducing your energy consumption will not only reduce your costs, but will also reduce your carbon footprint and help protect the natural environment.
Energy management is therefore, quickly becoming one of the most fundamental areas of focus across all business sectors.
The international energy management standard, ISO 50001 is based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle, which allows easy integration with your existing systems.
This article provides practical advice and guidance for those intending to implement an energy management system (EnMS) and undergo certification to ISO 50001:2011.
