ISO 50001


ISO 50001 is suitable for any organization, big or small, in any industry, from construction to medical devices – including yours. It sets out the requirements for an energy management system, asking you to define targets for your energy use and set out ways to achieve them.

The standard helps you:

Develop an energy policy

Set targets to implement the policy

Use energy-related data to make decisions

Monitor and measure your results and review your policy

Improve your performance

ISO 50001 follows a structure that makes it easy to use alongside other management system standards, such as OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001.
