Issue 41 – August 2012
At a recent BSI BS EN ISO 50001 Workshop in July 2012, all eyes were on energy management in the wake of the European Commission's Proposed Energy Efficiency Directive. The Directive obliges member states to establish energy efficiency schemes that make energy audits mandatory for large companies. Four BSI case studies show how forward-thinking organisations are already cutting their energy consumption with BSISO50001. As well as saving thousands of pounds, they have improved efficiency, created a sense of teamwork, and improved their reputation.
