ISO 50001 gap analysis and implementation

Whether you need to be EU Energy Efficiency Directive Article 8 compliant, reduce your operational costs, secure energy-related government subsidies, or position your company as a leader in sustainability, an ISO50001-compliant energy management system (EnMS) is essential. But successfully implementing such a system within your organization can be a daunting task.

Two steps to compliance
Our comprehensive ISO50001 gap analysis and implementation approach helps you face up to that challenge with confidence, taking into account the flexibility of each organization.

The two-step process starts with a gap analysis of your current EnMS against the requirements and best practices of the ISO50001 standard. By engaging stakeholders across your organization, we assess how your sites currently function and pinpoint your current strengths, weaknesses and focus points. This information is summarized in a clear implementation plan detailing the activities, the responsibilities, and the timings for moving forward.

In step two, we provide extensive implementation support and coaching to accelerate your organization’s journey to ISO50001 compliance. This includes:

  • Screening, reviewing and updating current procedures and working methods.
  • Creating new instructions if necessary.
  • Implementing all technical aspects required by ISO50001 (energy baseline, energy plan, energy performance indicators, etc).
  • Developing a communication plan and awareness campaign.
  • Designing a customized training program.
  • Facilitating external audits.

Achieve results faster
Through years of operating in the manufacturing industry, our experts engineers have built up an extensive knowledge of all ISO standards, including ISO50001.
