The Benefits of an ISO 50001 Energy Management System

15 Sep 2020

Developing sustainable energy management practices is a necessity for any business. ISO 50001 is an internationally recognised standard that can help you to achieve that. Created by energy management experts from more than 60 countries, the standard supports businesses to meet environmental requirements, save energy and reduce costs.

Business benefits of implementing ISO 50001

Legal compliance

ISO 50001 requires that your energy management system conforms to the relevant legislation and that you communicate your legal obligations to employees and other interested parties.


  • Greater levels of compliance to energy legislation.
  • Reduced risk of incurring energy-related fines and prosecutions, and lower insurance premiums.
  • Increased ability to proactively identify and address issues ahead of legislative changes.
  • Improved reputation and stakeholder trust.

Energy savings

The process of implementing ISO 50001 helps to identify how much energy you use, where it is used and whether any energy is being wasted. The standard requires that you implement effective controls to manage your energy use and continually identify areas for improvement.


  • Cost savings through improved energy management.
  • More ethically sound and cost-effective procurement procedures.
  • Reduced waste and increased efficiency.
  • Sustainable energy use in the face of rising costs.
