How does ISO 50001 fit with ISO 14001?
ISO 50001 focuses on energy performance improvement, whilst ISO 14001 addresses all the significant environmental impacts of an organisation. Both Standards can be implemented individually or they can be integrated with each other or any other ISO management standard, for example ISO 9001 (Quality) and ISO 45001 (Health and Safety).
If energy is your organisation’s most significant environmental impact and you are spending more than £200,000 per year on energy, then ISO 50001 might be a more appropriate Standard. Research by certification bodies identified that if a company is spending more than £200,000 per year on energy then payback on investment in ISO 50001 is likely to be less than 1 year, with savings accruing year on year.
We can help you assess the benefits of an Energy Management System for your organisation, whether ISO50001 is right for you and help you identify the potential energy savings. This is particularly important if you are obligated under ESOS, we can help you determine whether an ESOS Audit or an ISO 50001 system is the most effective route to compliance.
