Increasing Industrial Energy Efficiency through ISO 50001
Operational Plan: 2017 - 2018
North American industry relies on raw materials, energy, and supply chains to produce goods. This project is a joint partnership with industry to improve energy management, efficiency, reduce energy costs, and improve competitiveness in select North American industrial sectors through adoption of the international energy management ISO 50001 standard in supply chains.
The CEC engaged nine multinational corporations in key North American sectors to implement ISO 50001 at 19 of their facilities. In 2017–2018 the CEC will pilot an ISO 50001 supply chain deployment model in up to 40 supplier facilities across North America. Improving supply chain energy efficiency and costs improves competitiveness and produces significant environmental benefits through decreased pollutant emissions.
