ISO 50001 is a company level certification based on a standard published by the International Organization for Standardisation (ISO). The specification requires use of an energy management system with a main purpose of using energy more efficiently. The standard is based on a management system model of continual improvement, similar to some other common ISO standards. The certification calls for a company to develop an energy policy, establish goals to meet the policy, utilize data to meet goals, measure policy effectiveness, and continually make improvements to the policy.
ISO 50001 is not industry specific and is intended for any organization that wants to implement and maintain an energy management system
