The ISO 16001 will be replaced by the ISO 50001. What does this mean for companies?

Since the 24th of April 2012 certifications after ISO 16001 are not possible anymore. Companies must be certified ISO 50001 instead. The norm intends sustainable energy cost savings, the reduction of harmful emissions and other environmentally-harmful pollutants. The change towards the international accredited norm ISO 50001 is worthwhile for companies, as it is much more extensive in comparison to the old standard. Organisations will be put in a position to improve their energy efficiency and consumption in every process, starting from purchasing, product planning and after sales division. The existing management system will be supplemented by energy efficiency related key figures. These indicators show the yearly savings and also where energy is still wasted. This system allows to create targeted measures to reduce waste. You will be accompanied by Rhein S.Q.M. in a very professional manner through all project phases of the norm.
