ISO 50001 is a standard dedicated to the saving of energy, for larger companies, those with 250 staff or more, the standard is inextricably linked with the Energy Savings and Opportunities Scheme (ESOS) which becomes mandatory as of 31st December 2015.
The primary objective of both ISO 50001 and ESOS is to promote and improve company and organisational energy efficiency which will in turn help to reduce costs. If organisations reduce energy usage and costs it will assist the EU meet its 2020 20% headline target on energy efficiency.
For the larger company there are various routes to ESOS compliance but with many companies already being familiar with the systems and cultural requirements of internationally recognised management systems, like the quality management system ISO 9001, it is believed that integrating the requirements of the energy management standard ISO 50001, especially if the company already has and ISO 14001, is likely to be the most cost effective route to compliance.
