An ISO 50001 Energy Management framework can help organisations become leaders in energy management, reduce their energy consumption and costs, and meet legislative requirements. By implementing policies and processes in this framework and ensuring your organisation complies with the standard, you should see an improvement in your energy consumption as your organisation demonstrates its green credentials and commitment to carbon reduction.
Through becoming certified to ISO 50001, organisations can commit to addressing the impact they have on the environment through their energy use and demonstrate their plans to achieve their energy and carbon reduction goals.
How TEAM can help
Our team of energy experts can support you in complying to the ISO 50001 management standard by establishing the framework within your organisation and ensuring you meet the requirements for certification.
Our service provides a gap analysis to identify what your organisation needs to do comply with the framework. Once we have an understanding of where your organisation currently is in regard to setting up an energy management system, we will then advise and support on improvements that can be made to ensure compliance.
Our team of energy management experts will then assist you with writing the policies and procedures that will ensure your organisation can be certified and will help you establish an internal auditing programme. This will mean that you can conduct audits within your business to ensure you meet the framework requirements and indent opportunities for improvements.
Certification to ISO 50001 is awarded by an independent accreditation body and lasts for three years with a mandatory external audit usually taking place at least once every year.
ISO 50001 as a route to ESOS compliance
To become certificated to ISO 50001 you will need to gather accurate data on energy use within your organisation; this also involves developing a policy to improve energy efficiency and setting targets in line with that policy.
This means that if your organisation is required to comply with the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), you already hold the data needed to comply and you do not need to carry out an ESOS assessment or appoint an ESOS lead assessor. However, you will need to tell the Environment Agency that you are compliant, and it will be accepted as an alternative route to ESOS.
