Congratulations to the 2020 award winners! The CEM Energy Management Leadership Awards celebrate leading organizations that use the global ISO 50001 energy management system (EnMS) standard to attain enduring improvement in energy performance.


In 2020, the CEM’s Energy Management Working Group is honoring four companies with the top Award of Excellence in Energy Management and recognizing another 42 organizations with the distinguished Energy Management Insight Award. Both groups of awardees do more than use energy management systems to cost-effectively save energy and cut emissions—they help raise global awareness of the associated economic and sustainability benefits.


Award recipients are listed below, along with their case studies.* See Global ISO 50001 Achievements: Reducing costs, energy use, and CO2 emissions around the world for highlights on each award recipient. Meet the energy management experts who served as our 2020 judges.


Award of Excellence Winners

CTBC Financial Holding Co., Ltd. pursued ISO 50001 and other ISO standards at its CTBC Bank headquarters in 2012, then certified 152 bank branches. Galvanized by the energy and environmental benefits achieved by CTBC Bank, other CTBC subsidiaries followed suit, with 194 sites eventually certified to ISO 50001. Over seven years, CTBC Holdings increased energy performance 16 percent and cut carbon emissions by 5,316 metric tons. CTBC facility
JK Tyre & Industries Ltd. adopted ISO 50001 at its Vikrant Tyre Plant, in 2013 to help shrink its carbon footprint from fossil fuel use 70% by 2023—while increasing production. Over the past seven years, the plant has cut its emissions (CO2 equivalent) by more than 71 tons and reduced its energy costs by US $1,888,262. The EnMS helped the plant establish strong internal and external communications and clearly define criteria for efficiently operating and maintaining all significant energy-using equipment to maintain and grow its savings.

PT Indofood CBP Sukses Makmur Tbk. Noodle Division is a leading maker of instant noodles and the first such manufacturer in Southeast Asia to earn ISO 50001 certification. The Noodle Division’s three certified facilities collectively reduced their energy use by 10.7% over three years—cutting energy costs by US $830,400 and emissions by 25,526 metric tons (carbon dioxide equivalent). Leveraging a central approach to implementation, the company now plans to extend its EnMS to all 17 facilities in its Noodle Division. PT Indofood facility
Tipperary Co-Operative Creamery Limited began setting up an EnMS in 2017 as part of its plan to become carbon neutral by 2030 and comply with Ireland’s Energy Efficiency Directive. Over the two-year performance period, the company cut its energy costs by $562,342 and its carbon-equivalent emissions by 2,918 metric tons. The company now sells the verified energy credits from these savings and reinvests the funds into more energy projects. Tipperary equipment
