ISO 50001 Energy Management System Certification

Triple cost saving: Energy, environmental and economic

The Energy Management System is that part of the management system of an organisation dedicated to developing and implementing its energy policy, as well as managing those aspects of its activities, products or services that involve energy use.

The standard UNE-EN ISO 50001:2011 establishes the requirements that Energy Management Systems must satisfy so that constant, systematic improvements can be made to the energy efficiency of organisations.

The certification of an energy management system ensures systematic third party monitoring and follow-up of aspects related to energy and constant improvements to energy performance. It contributes to more efficient and more sustainable energy use, inspiring confidence in the management system.
