ISO 50001:2018

Certification of energy management systems


In recent years, energy issues have gained increasing importance in society and in companies and are in the focus of climate discussions. ISO 50001:2018 is built-up according to the «high level structure» and defines at international level the requirements for systematic, data- and fact-based energy management. It requires continuous improvement of the energy management system and energy-related performance, including improvement of energy use, energy consumption and energy efficiency. Companies that demonstrably meet these requirements can increase their energy efficiency and reduce the environmental impact of energy use. They can demonstrate that their activities are based on their own initiative and commitment and respect legal requirements.
SQS has years of professional experience and extensive expertise in validation and certification processes relating to energy use and carbon footprint. This explains why the SQS certificate for energy management systems conforming to ISO 50001 is held in high regard and accepted all over the world.


ISO 50001:2018 provides the basis for the continuous improvement of energy management and energy-related performance, as well as the associated cost reduction and reduction of energy-related greenhouse gas emissions.

Target groups

Companies and organisations of all sizes operating in all sectors.


3 years - there is an annual audit to ensure that standards are being maintained and a recertification audit after three years.


The SQS certificate of conformity with ISO 50001 has international validity and is recognised worldwide through the IQNET membership.


ISO 50001:2018 can be combined with ISO 14001:2015 (environmental management) and can be extended with other management system standards based on the «high level structure» to form an integrated management system.
