ISO 50001 launch event - ‘Enhance your energy performance with ISO 50001’

Energy management is a critical challenge for companies and organisations everywhere. By improving energy efficiency, you can boost your organisation’s bottom line, while conserving resources and lowering CO2 emissions. The best way to achieve it is with ISO 50001.
 
The new version of the ISO 50001 standard gives an overview of energy management practices considered to be the best, globally. The standard is the result of hard work by energy management experts from over 60 countries around the world. Now you can use that expertise daily to lower your energy consumption, your energy bills and your environmental footprint.

The benefits of an energy management system

By setting up an effective energy management system (EnMS), companies and organisations everywhere can manage their energy use in the best possible way. Such a system involves various aspects, including the design and roll-out of an energy policy, defining targets for energy use and establishing action plans to reach these goals. This can also include implementing energy-efficient technologies to help you reduce energy waste, cut energy costs and more. ISO 50001 offers you a framework to do just that.

Get the full scoop on ISO 50001

To help you achieve optimal energy performance through the power of standards, NBN is organising a launch event ‘Enhance your energy performance with ISO 50001’.
