ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems

ISO 50001 provides a solid and structured approach to energy management. Large companies will find the framework they need to make energy efficiency awareness and systems thinking penetrate every corner of the organization.

As with all ISO standards, it comes with an administrative burden that is mostly considered too heavy by SME decision makers. A standardised energy management system dedicated to SMEs – a kind of ‘ISO 50001 lite’ – is awaited.
