ISO 50001 is the ISO management system standard that sets out the requirements for organizations that wish to manage energy performance. It includes energy consumption such as gas use, electricity or fuel.
Expert Gary Cornell, in the Intelex Insight Report, “Achieving Energy Efficiency with ISO 50001,” notes that ISO 50001—the ISO management system standard related to energy performance—exists for two reasons: to help organizations reduce energy costs and to reduce the emissions of CO2 resulting from energy consumption.
