New standard to increase energy efficiency: EN 16001:2009

New  

Brussels (3 July 2009) – EN 16001:2009 ‘Energy Management Systems - Requirements with guidance for use’ was formally issued by CMC on Wednesday 1st July 2009. This standard provides organizations and companies with a single framework to help them establish the systems and processes necessary to improve energy efficiency. The adoption of EN 16001:2009 will contribute to the setting up of a continuous improvement process that will lead to cost reductions, thereby strengthening competitiveness and continual improvement of energy use and business performance. The standard is intended to apply to all types and sizes of organizations, and can be used independently or integrated with any other management system such as those for quality, environment and occupational health and safety management. The issuing of EN 16001:2009 (July 1) was timed to coincide with the CEN/CENELEC General Assembly - dedicated to the ‘Sustainable use of Energy - in Madrid. ’ Further information about the General Assembly including the invitation and programme can be found by using the following link:
