ISO 50001 will help organizations of all sizes implement the processes necessary to understand their baseline energy usage, as well as to establish action plans, targets, and energy performance indicators. The standard requires an organization to identify, prioritize, and record opportunities for improving energy performance to recognize those savings. By conforming to ISO 50001, an organization can reduce energy consumption.
The global threat of energy shortages, rising costs, and impending legislation to curb emissions of greenhouse gases, have all driven the development of the Standard. By implementing the Standard, organizations of all sizes have the potential to make dramatic financial savings and also enhance their reputation by demonstrating a commitment to improved energy efficiency and sustainability.
The Standard has been in development for a number of years with energy management experts who represent over
60 countries from across the world, coming together to establish the framework. Mike Low, Director of Standards, at BSI said: 'ISO 50001 is a significant, new global standard that will bring tremendous business value to organizations across the world that are facing rising energy costs and greater governmental climate change legislation. The standard clearly sets out the processes and actions that can enable any organization to immediately save money and make energy efficient investments. BSI will offer a full package of training for energy reduction verification to help our clients achieve these savings.'
ISO 50001 is applicable to all types of organizations irrespective of geographical, cultural, or social conditions. BSI will offer introductory and implementation training courses in Reston, VA; San Diego, CA; Houston, TX; and San Jose, CA. Visit www.bsiamerica.com/50001training for more information on schedules.
