IT Governance’s ISO 50001 documentation toolkit helps businesses implement an energy management system

ELY, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, November 28, 2016 / — IT Governance, the leading provider of ISO management system expertise, is encouraging organisations to accelerate their ISO 50001 energy management system (EnMS) implementation projects by using its ESOS & ISO 50001 Energy Management System Documentation Toolkit.

ISO 50001 is the international standard for energy management systems. The Standard is designed to help organisations reduce costs, conserve resources and tackle climate change. It also ensures that the organisation considers its energy requirements in all facets of the business through the implementation of an EnMS.

A recent ISO Survey reported that nearly 12,000 organisations worldwide have achieved certification to the Standard, demonstrating the increasing popularity of ISO 50001 as a framework for energy management.

UK organisations with more than 250 employees and an annual turnover in excess of £33 million are required to demonstrate compliance to ESOS, the Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme.

By implementing an ISO 50001-certified EnMS, organisations reduce the costs of energy consumption, promote energy management best practice and meet the legal, contractual and statutory requirements for energy management. Organisations with ISO 50001 certification are no longer required to carry out an ESOS assessment.

Alan Calder, the founder and chief executive officer of IT Governance, said: “To achieve compliance with ISO 50001 and implement an energy management system, organisations need to create policies and procedures to implement, operate and measure the EnMS, all under the auspices of an energy policy.

“As energy consumption reduction is becoming a priority for organisations, our ISO 50001 Energy Management System Documentation Toolkit helps people involved in compliance projects by providing templates and documentation to speed up implementation and reduce the room for error.”

The ESOS & ISO 50001 Energy Management System Documentation toolkit has been created and developed by ISO 50001 experts to be used by organisations of any size to develop their own 'green' management system.
