Energy is a critical constituent in most organisations, and the usage can have major cost implications. This standard helps you take a structured approach towards measuring and monitoring how much energy you use. By measuring and monitoring energy use, the standard will help you reduce costs and improve energy performance as well as helping you meet environmental and carbon reduction targets.
What is ISO 50001?
ISO 50001 is the international standard for Energy Management Systems (EnMS). It is applicable to any organisation – whatever your size, industry or location to manage their energy, including procurement and use. ISO 50001 is based on the management system model of continual improvement also used for other well-known standards such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001.
ISO 50001 specifies requirements an organisation needs to establish, implement, maintain and improve an energy management system. That enables an organisation to take a systematic approach to achieve continual improvement of energy performance, energy efficiency and energy conservation.
ISO 50001 Energy Management offers organisations through the development of an energy management system (EnMS) a system to tackle climate change and conserve resources, through using energy more efficiently.
It helps organizations manage energy supply and energy uses and consumption, including measurement, documentation and reporting, design and procurement practices for energy using equipment, systems, processes, and personnel.

If required, IMSM will develop and deliver tailored training programmes for your staff to supplement your ISO certification. This ensures a full understanding and implementation of the quality controls being put in place, by way of employee development.
The external audit is the monitoring of your company’s conformance to the ISO standard. IMSM will continually support your business through the aforementioned stages as well as leading up to the audit, offering support and guidance to conformity. Once your organisation is confirmed as being ISO standard compliant, your organisation will be submitted to the certifying body deemed suitable. Your organisation will then be awarded the ISO certification.
