Energy Management
Through the Clean Energy Ministerial’s Energy Management Campaign, leaders from the public and private sectors are uniting to promote a proven framework to manage energy use: the ISO 50001 international energy management system standard.
The goal

The goal is simple: Drive action to reach 50,001 global certifications to ISO 50001 by 2020.

 

The opportunity

Governments, companies, and development organizations can join the Campaign by committing to take action that promotes and accelerates ISO 50001 implementation:

  • Endorse key principles for quality implementation of ISO 50001
  • Pledge concrete actions to promote uptake of the standard and principles
  • Commit to international technical exchange
  • Recognize leadership through the CEM Energy Management Leadership Awards
  • Track and share progress on uptake of the standard

Why It's Needed

To reduce energy use across commercial and industrial sectors, lowering both costs and emissions. Evidence shows that organizations adopting the ISO 50001 standard are realizing initial energy improvements of 10% or more and achieving net cost savings, mostly through low-cost or no-cost changes to operations.

To support the global climate agenda. Worldwide implementation of ISO 50001 by large energy-using organizations is estimated to drive cumulative energy savings of 62 exajoules by 2030, cost savings of $600 billion, and 6,500 Mt of avoided CO2 emissions. The projected annual emissions savings in 2030 are equivalent to removing 215 million passenger vehicles from the road.

To provide a universal benchmark. ISO 50001 is technically rigorous and globally relevant, providing a reliable means of measuring progress toward corporate goals, as well as national and international climate commitments.

Recognition

Organizations that make high-level commitments to help accelerate ISO 50001 implementation will benefit through

  • High-level recognition at the eighth Clean Energy Ministerial meeting in Beijing, China, in 2017 and other events, as well as inclusion on the Campaign webpage and in Campaign materials and presentations
  • Membership in the ranks of global energy and climate leaders from governments, businesses, and energy/climate organizations
  • Resources and information through quarterly webinars, conferences, and annual meetings, as well as ongoing access to subject matter experts through the Energy Management Working Group (EMWG)
  • Technical support and access to Working Group activities and tools
