UK remains one of the leaders for energy and environmental management certifications
UK businesses have maintained a leading level of take-up of energy and environmental management systems (EMS) standards according to new figures released by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).
The 2015 results of the ISO survey have shown that the number of certificates for the ISO 50001 standard of energy management increased in the UK by almost four times (289% increase) between 2014 and 2015, with 1,464 awarded.
This represents a huge rise from the 376 ISO 50001 certificates deployed in 2014 and makes up the lion’s share of the total number awarded since 2011 in the UK (2,317). ISO has attributed this rapid growth to the fact that ISO 50001 is relatively new to the market
This places the UK second in the world for the number of energy management certifications from ISO behind Germany, which saw almost 6,000 certificates awarded to businesses last year alone.
