ISO 50001: The Six Things You Need to Know


A new global energy management systems standard, ISO 50001, was released on June 15. In the coming months and years, its tenets will become woven into the operational fabric of thousands of companies. 

What will it take for your organization to be certified under ISO 50001? The answer involves not merely understanding the standard’s requirements, but also the key issues involved with setting up an energy management system that will achieve your organization’s objectives. In our previous session, we demonstrated why organizations should implement an Energy Management System. This webcast will focus on how companies can implement the necessary steps to prepare their organization for the standard, so they have the tools to begin down the path to ISO 50001 implementation. 

You’ll see how companies have already been able to realize benefits from their own energy management systems and what your organization can do to begin the process.
