DIN EN ISO 50001 – increase energy performance with the international standard for energy management systems

The international ISO 50001 standard established the requirements and guidance for organizations to successfully develop, implement, maintain and continually improve an energy management system (EnMS).

With the ISO 50001 revision, the standard provides companies internationally recognized guidelines to improve energy balance, reduce CO2 emissions, and lower energy costs by using energy more efficiently.

Our experts support you in introducing an effective energy management system in accordance with ISO 50001:2018. Increased requirements necessary for the sustainable and efficient use of energy have been optimally addressed in the revised standard.

Our many years of practical experience in ISO certification makes us the ideal partner to serve you in your energy management system needs. With us by your side for the entire certification process, you have the opportunity to establish sustainable improvement in energy efficiency throughout your company.

Our experts are happy to answer any further questions you may have. Feel free to contact us!

Revision ISO 50001:2018

You may continue to be certified by us according to the old standard for up to 18 months after the publication of the new ISO 50001:2018. After that, we will no longer carry out audits according to ISO 50001:2011.

We offer you further information: Read more in our questions and answers on ISO 50001

Improve your energy performance and reduce energy costs with ISO 50001

With an ISO 50001 certified energy management system, your organization will improve its energy balance and reduce CO2 emissions. This leads to increased profitability and improved competitive advantages through lower energy costs. By identifying optimization potentials, your organization’s success will be maximized through the introduction of new energy-efficient technologies.

The High-Level-Structure (HLS) provides a guideline to help you optimally unify the structure and requirements of your energy management system. This superordinate structure facilitates the implementation and maintenance of several management systems and supports the development of integrated management systems.

ISO 50001 certification will increase your employees’ awareness and motivation toward a more efficient use of energy, document your energy performance improvement efforts and promote the positive branding of your organization.
