The Standards Council of Canada’s (SCC’s) Energy Management Systems Accreditation Program assesses the competence of bodies that intend to certify organizations in their implementation of the international standard, ISO 50001 – Energy Management Systems.
By establishing energy management systems and processes in accordance with ISO 50001, organizations can improve their overall energy performance, including energy efficiency, use and consumption. These improvements can lead to significant energy cost savings, as well as reduce an organization’s greenhouse gas emissions (carbon footprint), and other adverse environmental impacts.
SCC’s Energy Management Systems Accreditation Program accredits certification bodies that certify energy management systems in the following sectors:
• Commercial buildings
• Light and medium industry
• Heavy industrial
• Building complex energy use
• Energy providers
