ISO 50001

Energy management systems. Requirements with guidance for use

Effective energy management is a priority for organizations not only because of its significant potential for cost reduction, but also because of its role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Energy management systems based on ISO 50001 are an integral part of the complex management system of the organization, which aims to establish the systems and processes needed to improve the overall energy efficiency of the organization. This International Standard applies to all types and sizes of organizations, regardless of their geographical, cultural, and social conditions.
The main benefits of implementation and subsequent certification in accordance with this standard include:
– promoting energy efficiency in the organization
– reduction of environmental impact, in particular reduction of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere
– promoting the use of alternative and renewable energy sources
– compliance with legal requirements
– cost reduction
– strengthening the image of the organization in relation to climate issues
