ISO 50001 Energy Management System Update

Using energy efficiently helps organisations save money as well as helping to conserve resources and tackle climate change.

As part of MBA’s ongoing commitment to an improved environment, we are currently working towards the ISO 50001 Energy Management System certification.  ISO 50001 is a voluntary standard developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). The certification will also cover the ESOS energy assessment which is carried out every 4 years under the direction of the Environment Agency.

ESOS is a mandatory energy assessment scheme for large organisations in the UK and to ensure that MBA is fully compliant, we have already commenced projects to obtain a better understanding of our baseline energy consumptions across all of our facilities.

The ISO 50001 certification will be achieved by evidencing our continual improvement for energy consumption, which will reduce both our energy costs and carbon footprint. By committing to ISO 50001 we will develop a policy for more efficient energy use, achieve measurable targets and review the policy over time to continually improve energy management.

The scheme will be primarily led by our Facilities teams in London and Warrington, as well as a new internal Energy Management Committee with ‘Energy Champions’ located at each MBA site. The committee will be responsible for implementing the energy saving initiatives, meeting the required targets of ISO 50001 and ESOS and conducting regular review meetings to devise new ways of saving energy and keep improving our environmental impact.

This certification will add to and support our already extensive ISO accreditations.
