EMCOR First With Standards

EMCOR UK, the facilities management provider, is the first UK organisation to achieve conformity to ISO 50001:2018 Energy Management, following an independent assessment by business standards company BSI. 

Achieving conformity to this revised ISO Standard provides an important framework that supports EMCOR UK’s commitment to delivering innovative energy management solutions for clients, improving energy use and efficiency, reducing energy consumption and environmental impact.  

Having previously achieved ISO 50001:2011 (in 2012 and each year thereafter), EMCOR UK has to date, worked with many clients to set and achieve energy objectives and targets, helping improve operational efficiencies and maintenance practices. This has led to an improved awareness of energy consumption within client organisations.  With conformity to the new standard achieved, EMCOR UK will continue its collaborative work with clients to help ensure they have the benefit of best practice in energy management within their businesses.

Keith Chanter, CEO, EMCOR UK, commented: “We are committed to achieving industry best practices in energy efficiency and the delivery of innovative energy management solutions to reduce consumption and environmental impact.  Conformity to this new standard strengthens our position as a leader in providing integrated facilities management services which enable our customers to better manage energy efficiency, deliver immediate cost savings, whilst helping to protect the environment.”

Amanda Pakes, EMEA Product Champion for energy management at BSI commented: “Regulation, such as ESOS has put energy management high on the agenda for many businesses, encouraging organisations to review their total energy use, energy efficiency and identify cost-effective energy savings opportunities.   Rising energy costs, possible energy shortages and the need to protect reputation is driving organisations to think more strategically about energy management.  Achieving conformity to ISO 50001 helps organisations to drive efficiency improvements, remain sustainable and be more resilient.”
