Energy Management Systems — Requirements with guidance for use

Efficient energy management is an essential issue for any organization. Whether to realize savings, improve productivity or reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, there are good reasons justifying the implementation of an energy management system. ISO 50001:2018 Energy Management Systems — Requirements with guidance for use offers organizations a methodical approach allowing continuous improvement of their energy performance. The ISO 50001 standard particularly targets energy efficiency, use and consumption.

Although it can be used alone, ISO 50001:2018 presents several elements common to other ISO standards and integrates well with an environmental management system (ISO 14001) or a quality management system (ISO 9001).
