Accelerating Energy Savings through ISO50001
The global ISO 50001 energy management system standard now has a demonstrated track record of getting greater energy savings, at less cost and in a sustainable manner than the more traditional “ad hoc” or “project implementation” approaches to energy management. Companies just beginning their energy management journey as well as seasoned veteran companies are finding the structured energy management system of ISO 50001 to be paying off with results that appeals to both bottom-line business decision makers as well as sustainability teams responsible for achieving aggressive corporate greenhouse gas emission goals.
Within North America, manufacturing and commercial companies have the opportunity for national government recognition through the “50001 Ready” and “Superior Energy Performance 50001” programs. Tools and resources available to industry will be presented along with case studies of a variety of companies to illustrate the versatile nature of ISO 50001.
