Facilities management provider, EMCOR UK, has become the first UK organisation to achieve conformity to ISO 50001:2018 Energy Management, following an independent assessment by business standards company, BSI.
Having previously achieved ISO 50001:2011 (in 2012 and each year thereafter), EMCOR UK has been working with clients to set and achieve energy objectives and targets, helping improve operational efficiencies and maintenance practices.
With conformity to the new standard achieved, EMCOR UK will continue its collaborative work with clients to help ensure they have the benefit of best practice in energy management implemented within their business.
Keith Chanter, CEO, EMCOR UK, commented: “EMCOR UK is delighted to be the first company to achieve conformity to the revised ISO 50001:2018 Energy Management standard from BSI. We are committed to achieving industry best practices in energy efficiency and the delivery of innovative energy management solutions to reduce consumption and environmental impact. Conformity to this new standard further strengthens our position as a leader in delivering integrated facilities management services which are enabling our customers to better manage energy efficiency delivering immediate cost savings whilst helping to protect the environment.”
Amanda Pakes, EMEA Product Champion for Energy Management at BSI commented: “Regulation, such as ESOS has put energy management high on the agenda for many businesses, encouraging organisations to review their total energy use, energy efficiency and identify cost-effective energy savings opportunities. On top of this, rising energy costs, possibly energy shortages and the need to protect reputation is driving organisations to think more strategically about energy management.
“Achieving conformity to ISO 50001 can help organisations to drive efficiency improvements, remain sustainable and be more resilient – we’re delighted that EMCOR UK is the first to achieve this with us.”
