Driving Decarbonization with an ISO 50001 Energy Management System
A successful corporate decarbonization initiative requires a robust energy management system. The ISO 50001 energy management standard provides the framework for organizing activities necessary for success. The US Department of Energy's 50001 Ready Program and Navigator software platform provide guidance, tools, and technical assistance that can help companies integrate their decarbonization and energy efficiency activities into single robust set of business practices that will provide them a platform for achieving their sustainability goals.
