Processes for continual improvement

Energy management systems

Companies are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of systematic energy management practices. Certified energy management systems based on the leading international norm ISO 50001 help companies to reduce energy consumption, optimize material flows, ensure compliance with regulatory requirements, and make an active contribution to the clean-energy transition. The implementation of a robust energy management system is the ideal starting point for undertaking ambitious corporate climate action.

Opportunities and challenges
