Frequently Asked questions
ISO 50001 is based on a management system model that is already understood and implemented by organizations worldwide. To provide compatibility and integration opportunities, the standard uses the Plan-Do-Check-Act approach employed in ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. ISO 50001 can make a positive difference for organizations of all types in the very near future by improving energy management practices. At 4C, the ISO 50001 consultants have hands on experience and will help your organisation in right implementation of ISO 50001.
No. Organizations can take many steps to start improving energy management without becoming certified. However, certification to ISO 50001 provides a structured approach that incorporates energy management into company culture, resulting in sustained energy savings and continual improvements in energy performance over time. This can help justify initial investments in energy projects and ensure return on investment. Without a structured approach, there is no guarantee that energy savings will be sustained or that return-on-investment will be maximized. Our ISO 50001 consultants can help your organization with every step of improvement.
Energy is a critical component of an organization's operations and can be one of the largest controllable costs, depending on the activities. Improved energy performance helps organizations maximize the use of their energy sources and energy-related assets, thus reducing both energy cost and consumption. ISO 50001 provides a framework for organizations to make positive contributions toward reducing depletion of energy resources and mitigating worldwide effects of energy use, such as global warming, while improving the efficiency of organizational operations related to energy.
