Advantages of certification to ISO 50001 EnMS

The introduction and certification of an energy management system has the following advantages:

  • Enables identification of cost-saving potential
  • Often a prerequisite for electricity tax refunds
  • Image boost
  • Increased transparency of energy-related processes
  • Increased employee motivation
  • Additional acquisition tool
  • Lower CO2 emissions

Can synergy effects be utilized if an environmental management system is also in place?

Utilize potential synergies: You can decide whether to introduce an independent energy management system or to integrate it into an already existing system. Furthermore, as the structure of ISO 50001 is absolutely comparable with that of ISO 14001 or a quality management system in line with ISO 9001, integration is possible without a great deal of effort.

ISO 50001
Energy Management System

Improve the energy efficiency of your company in a sustainable way. Our experts will be happy to support you during the certification of your energy management system to ISO 50001.

An ISO 50001-compliant energy management system can be introduced in all companies, regardless of their size or industry, with the objective of continuously improving energy-related performance.

When a company introduces an energy management system, all energy-related processes are analyzed and optimized. In doing so, you introduce a system for making energy flows more transparent. This can then be used to constantly identify and – when possible and economically viable – realize energy-saving potential.

Process of certification to ISO 50001 EnMS

The certification is divided into six steps:

  • On-site readiness assessment
  • Documentation check
  • Certification audit
  • Awarding of certificate
  • Monitoring audit
  • Re-certification

The basic structure of ISO 50001 is comparable to that of the environmental management system standard ISO 14001 and the quality management system standard ISO 9001:2015. Among other steps, companies must define or make statements on the following:

  • Energy policy
  • Definition of organizational structure and responsibilities
  • Definition of energy objectives and measures
  • Specification of energy performance indicators for determining energy-related performance
  • Collection of energy-related data
  • Promotion of expertise and raising of awareness
  • Operational planning and control
  • Energy-efficient design of systems
  • Monitoring and measurement
  • Internal auditing of the energy management system
  • Assessment of the energy management system and energy-related performance by top management
