ISO 50001:2018

Energy Management System (ISO 50001:2018)

ISO 50001:2018 specifies requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an energy management system (EnMS). The intended outcome is to enable an organization to follow a systematic approach in achieving continual improvement of energy performance and the EnMS.

ISO 50001:2018 is applicable to any organization regardless of its type, size, complexity, geographical location, organizational culture or the products and services it provides.

 Aim of an OH&S management system

The purpose of this International Standard is to provide organizations with a framework to protect the environment and respond to changing environmental conditions in balance with socio-economic needs. It specifies requirements that enable an organization to achieve the intended outcomes it sets for its environmental management system.

A systematic approach to environmental management can provide top management with information to build success over the long term and create options for contributing to sustainable development by:

  • protecting the environment by preventing or mitigating adverse environmental impacts;
  • mitigating the potential adverse effect of environmental conditions on the organization;
  • assisting the organization in the fulfilment of compliance obligations;
  • enhancing environmental performance;
  • controlling or influencing the way the organization’s products and services are designed, manufactured, distributed, consumed and disposed by using a life cycle perspective that can prevent environmental impacts from being unintentionally shifted elsewhere within the life cycle;
  • achieving financial and operational benefits that can result from implementing environmentally sound alternatives that strengthen the organization’s market position;
  • communicating environmental information to relevant interested parties.

This International Standard, like other International Standards, is not intended to increase or change an organization’s legal requirements.
