• Review how well the policy works, and
• Continually improve energy management.

Benefits of certification to ISO 50001 include:

• Reduced energy costs through the management of energy consumption.
• Reduction in GHG emissions, meeting energy efficiency targets and the requirements of GHG emission reduction legislation
• Enhanced secure energy supply
• Improved stakeholder relationships
