The main objective of the standard is to improve energy-related performance and energy efficiency continuously and to identify energy reduction opportunities. This systematic approach will help organizations to establish systems and processes.

Consistent energy management helps organizations to realize untapped energy efficiency potential. They will benefit from cost savings and make a significant contribution to environmental and climate protection, for example by the permanent reduction of CO2 emissions. The standard should alert employees and in particular the management level to the immediate and long-term energy management gains that can be made. The organization can discover potential savings and competitive advantages. Furthermore a huge image boost for the organization can be created.

Saving energy, rather than embarking on projects to generate renewable energy, should be the first action taken by companies to reduce their energy costs. ISO 50001 specifies the requirements of a process which organisations can implement to:

•Understand their energy use
•Identify opportunities to save energy
•Do it continuously
•Improve their energy saving processes.

The purpose of ISO 50001: 2011 is to enable an organization to achieve continual improvement in its energy use and consumption or energy performance through a systematic approach.

ISO 50001:2011 certification can be achieve irrespective of certification to any other standard such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 22000, OHSAS 18000 though it can be integrated with any other standard and ingrated certification can also be obtained.
