Improve energy efficiency with energy management system certification

A robust approach that unlocks long-term efficiency gains. ISO 50001 is the international standard for Energy Management Systems (EnMS) that has been designed to help organisations build a systematic approach to energy performance. Gaining the ISO 50001 certification from LRQA demonstrates your commitment to sustainable energy practices and compliance with local energy regulations, and is the key to cost savings further down the line.

ESOS compliance using ISO 50001

The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) a mandatory energy assessment scheme for organisations in the UK that meet the qualification criteria.

ISO 50001 certification issued by a UKAS accredited certification body such as LRQA, that covers the full scope of your organisation’s energy consumption, will automatically qualify your organisation to comply with the ESOS and you will only need to notify the Environment Agency and provide proof of compliance via the ISO 50001 certification route.

A new ESOS compliance period starts every four years. The qualification date for the third compliance period is 31 December 2022. If your system is certified to ISO 50001, your organisation will automatically demonstrate Period 3 ESOS compliance. Maintenance and continual improvement of your ISO 50001 certified system will also allow ongoing compliance with future ESOS Phases.
