ISO 50001 Certification

Efficient energy management thanks to ISO 50001 certification

Successful companies rely on solid management strategies and systems to regularly evaluate and sustainably increase their energy efficiency.

An energy management system (EnMS) certified according to the internationally recognized ISO 50001 standard helps companies of all sizes to meet the efficiency goals unique to their business.

About ISO 50001 certification

Released in June 2011, the new ISO 50001:2018 has a High-Level Structure (HLS) and is based on the quality standard ISO 9001 and the environmental standard ISO 14001. This enables organizations to convert their existing energy and environmental management systems into a systematic energy management system:
  • Development of a company policy for the more efficient use of energy
  • Determination of characteristic values
  • Data analysis of energy consumption in all major consumption areas
  • Measurement of results
  • Continuous monitoring of measures
