Why choose ISO 50001 Certification?

ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems can provide organisations with more control over the way they use energy and how they manage the related costs more effectively. It is particularly beneficial for organisations with significant energy expenditure.

ISO 50001 can be applied to most companies including small to medium-sized enterprises, regardless of the different processes, plant, systems, culture and resources.

For organisations that hold ISO 14001, the majority of the basic framework will be in place, to maximise your organisation’s potential to deliver ongoing energy and cost savings. 

The Benefits of ISO 50001 Certification

  • Reduced operating costs.
    Significant financial savings can be achieved through increased energy efficiency.

  • Improved energy efficiency. 
    ISO 50001 is the most robust energy management system, enabling you to make continual improvements to become as efficient as possible.

    and people will respond positively to your organisation. This will also meet your need for corporate social responsibility in terms of corporate action encouraging a positive impact on the environment.

  • Proven business credentials.
    Independent verification against recognised standards speaks volumes and enhances your brand.

  • Ability to win more business.
    Increasingly more procurement specifications require certification as a condition to supply, so certification is essential

  • ESOS energy assessment compliance.
    DECC has confirmed that accredited ISO 50001 certification will contribute to ESOS compliance.


ESOS Compliance and ISO 50001

Achieving ISO 50001 certification automatically demonstrates compliance with the government's Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), without the need for an additional ESOS assessment. This is because ISO 50001 covers all energy use and demonstrates that an organisation is already engaged with reducing its overall energy usage. In addition to this, organisations who have previously complied with ESOS may find it easier to start implementing ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems, due to the report and plans provided from an ESOS Assessment. 

The ISO 50001 Certification Process

Becoming certified is quick and easy. We use a simple four-stage process saving your business time and money.

Stage One

Our team of consultants will get to know you and your organisation and understand how you operate in order to draft an ISO compliant manual for your company.

Stage Two

Elmhurst Energy Consultancy will work with and advise you on best practices and assist with the implementation of your manual.

Stage Three

Certification is achieved where an ISO 50001 accredited auditor will visit your company to ensure that the processes documented in your manual are being followed. This can be undertaken by our certification partners, NQA.

Stage Four

Your manual and processes must be checked annually to ensure that your ISO certification remains valid.
