Effective energy management systems (EnMS) help your organization to establish processes to improve energy performance. Implementation should reduce your energy costs, Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and other environmental impacts. ISO 50001 establishes an international framework for the supply, use and consumption of energy in industrial, commercial and institutional organizations.

Implement an ISO 50001 compliant sustainable energy management system and demonstrate that your organization has completed a baseline of energy use and is committed to continuously improving its energy intensity.

The 50001 Ready Navigator is an online dashboard that provides step-by-step guidance to implementing and maintaining an energy management system in conformance with the principles of ISO 50001. Users can submit their facilities for 50001 Ready recognition directly through the Navigator. The 50001 Ready Navigator is built on open-source standards and designed for flexibility to allow for re-branding and customization by utilities and other organizations.
