ISO 50001 – Save Energy, Costs and Taxes

Careful handling of energy resources is one of the most important responsibilities of any organization today. Suitable measures focus on the continuous improvement of energy efficiency, as well as the entire energy-related performance of the organization. The international energy management standard ISO 50001 supplies your organization with an ideal framework: it allows you not only to conserve energy, but also to reduce costs. And what’s more: in many countries, governments grant financial benefits to energy-efficient organizations. Are you ready to keep your organization up-to-date on energy matters? Then why don’t you demonstrate your abilities with an ISO 50001 certificate?

Transparency through clear energy planning processes

ISO 50001 is a management system standard that supports your organization in the implementation of a comprehensive energy management system and the continuous improvement of energy-related performance. In doing so, it focuses on the energetic review of your organization, and the implementation of an energy planning process.

The most important prerequisites are the systematic recording of your organization’s energy flows, the definition of energy targets and action plans, as well as detailed and suitable mechanisms for monitoring. The implementation of legal requirements adds the additional component of legal certainty.

An energy management system according to ISO 50001 is based on the PDCA cycle, in the same way as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001– which means it can be integrated easily into an existing management system. The improved transparency of energy flows allows you to conduct a more stringent evaluation of energy-related performance in the daily work flows. In addition, well-founded data analysis will help you to identify saving potential.

How it works

A certification by DQS will result in many advantages for your organization, above and beyond a simple declaration of conformity. In order to achieve maximum benefit on site, we tailor the planning of each assessment and coordinate with you in respect of any particulars, your corporate objectives, and success factors. A pre-audit by DQS can be used to evaluate performance in advance, and to identify strengths and potential for improvement. In the case of larger certification projects, a project planning meeting is a valuable opportunity for your organization to meet the lead auditor, and to jointly prepare a customized assessment plan for the areas and sites involved.
