What is ISO 50001?

ISO 50001 provides a proven, internationally recognized system for planning, managing, measuring and continually improving energy performance in any organization that uses energy. ISO 50001 is based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act management system model of continual improvement, as used by such other international standards as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. For more information on ISO 50001, click here.

A growing number of companies and their facilities worldwide have implemented ISO 50001 as a strategic approach for achieving significant cost savings while improving public image and commitment to sustainability. Read these case studies to learn about companies across North America that have certified to the ISO 50001 standard and achieved exceptional improvement in energy performance.
