- ISO 50001 is the new international Energy Management system Standard (EnMS) and first global EnMS following from a range of national and regional standards such as EN 16001. It is a key mechanism for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving energy efficiency globally. The process of adopting ISO 50001 is highly beneficial for organizations, especially those with reporting and transparency pressures from shareholders and other entities requesting measurement data. It will help these companies formalize accepted best practices and ensure accurate and standardized reporting.

This International Standard is applicable to all types and sizes of organizations, irrespective of geographical, cultural or social conditions. Successful implementation depends on commitment from all levels and functions of the organization, and especially from top management.
