ISO 50001: Are You Ready for the New Energy Management Standard?
June 13, 2011
Does your company use ISO standards in order to improve business, quality, and service? Did you hear that later this year, ISO will publish a new global standard for energy management?
ISO 50001 will establish a framework for managing energy. In fact, it’s estimated that the ISO 50001 standard may influence over 60% of all energy produced and consumed in the world. The objective of ISO 50001 is to help organizations, large or small, improve their energy performance, increase energy efficiency, and reduce the environmental impact related to energy consumption.
