ISO 50001

Energy Management System Certification

Becoming more energy efficient is an effective way to future-proof your business. By switching to decarbonized power sources and reducing overall energy use, you can minimize costs and prove your environmental credentials.

Manage energy to demonstrate efficient usage and to reduce costs

Certification to the ISO 50001 standard ensures that your organization has a healthy energy management system, reducing energy consumption, environmental impact and increasing profitability.
It specifies requirements for management practices that are important to obtain improved energy performance. Demonstrates to customers, employees, and stakeholders that efficient use of energy is prioritised in your organisation and that energy is managed systematically. Allows for credible market communication about energy performance efforts.

Benefits of becoming certified

Certifying your energy management system to the ISO 50001  standard may benefit your organisation in many ways. A certified management system confirms that you are working structured and strategically to reduce the organisation’s environmental footprint, and that you are committed to further improvement of environmental management.
Certification to the standard can contribute to:

  • Improvement of energy performance, including energy efficiency, use and energy consumption.
  • Reducing environmental impact, including greenhouse gas emissions without affecting operations and simultaneously increasing profitability.
  • Continual improvement of the energy management systems.
  • Ensuring measurement, documentation, reporting and benchmarking of energy consumption.
  • Credible market communication about energy performance efforts.


Implementing a comprehensive Energy Management System helps you monitor, manage, predict and reduce energy use. Based on self-assessments, you can create an energy policy and management system that can lead to reduced energy consumption and increased savings.

Improve Efficiencies

Encourages a more effective use of your resources, in turn reducing amount of claims, returns, reprocesses and rejections – potentially lower levels of regulatory reporting.

Reduced operating costs

Significant financial savings can be achieved through increased energy efficiency.

Reduced Carbon Footprint

Make the health and property of staff, customers and suppliers more of a priority and people will respond.

Legal Compliance

Understand how statutory and regulatory requirements impact your organization and its customers.

What is ISO 50001 ?

ISO 50001 is an international standard for Energy Management providing the most robust framework for optimizing energy efficiency in public and private sector organizations.
ISO 50001 certification demonstrates an organization’s commitment to continual improvement in energy management, allowing them to lead by example within their respective industries and ensure related legislative and regulatory requirements are met.


Step 1

Complete a Quote Request Form so that we can understand your company and requirements. You can do this by completing either the online quick quote or the online formal quote request form. We will use this information to accurately define your scope of assessment and provide you with a proposal for certification.


Step 2

Once you’ve agreed your proposal, we will contact you to book your assessment with an WECERT Assessor. This assessment consists of two mandatory visits that form the Initial Certification Audit. Please note that you must be able to demonstrate that your management system has been fully operational for a minimum of three months and has been subject to a management review and full cycle of internal audits.


Step 3

Following a successful two stage audit, a certification decision is made and if positive, then certification to the required standard is issued by WECERT. You will receive both a hard and soft copy of the certificate. Certification is valid for three years and is maintained through a programme of annual surveillance audits and a three yearly recertification audit.
