Energy Management Systems

ISO 50001

Sustainably reducing costs through the continuous improvement of energy-related performance

DIN EN ISO 50001 is an international standard for energy management systems and was first published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in 2011.

The introduction and certification of an energy management system in accordance with ISO 50001 supports companies, institutions and government bodies in developing a systematic concept for the procurement and use of energy, as well as optimising energy efficiency.

This not only means a reduction in consumption and costs, but it also reduces risks associated with dependence on external energy suppliers. This increases economic efficiency and provides a competitive advantage.

Furthermore, certification of the energy management system according to ISO 50001 demonstrates to customers and employees that the company is assuming ecological responsibility towards the environment.

The standard is compatible with other recognised management systems such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001.
