What is EN 16001?

 

16001

Today more than ever, effective energy management is a crucial issue for the success of any business. For many, the answer is an Energy Management System (EnMS) – a framework for the systematic management of energy. As well as enhancing energy efficiency, an EnMS can cut costs and reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions providing you with a competitive advantage. EN 16001 represents the latest best practice in energy management building upon existing national standards and initiatives. The standard specifies the requirements for an EnMS to enable your organization to develop and implement a policy, identify significant areas of energy consumption and target energy reductions.

 

Who is EN 16001 relevant to?

 

EN 16001 is suitable for any organization – whatever your size, sector or geographical location. It is particularly relevant if you operate in an energy intensive industry or one facing GHG emission legislation.

Being independently certified to EN 16001 by ISC, an independent third-party, will be the ultimate assurance to your stakeholders that you comply with Energy Management best practice.
