Energy Management in the Automotive Industry - Green Production and Reducing Supply-Chain Waste

ISO 50001 is an international standard that provides a framework to help you manage the energy supply and consumption in organizations.

The ISO 50001 Energy Management System standard applies to all aspects of energy use and enables you to help your organization and your suppliers take a systematic approach to achieving continual improvement of energy performance.

Energy management in the Automotive Industry is essential for reducing energy costs. In a global industry where competition is fierce, auto companies and suppliers need to build the infrastructure to know how, when, and where all forms of energy are used in their facilities and optimize energy costs by reducing exposure to fluctuating energy prices and tracking energy costs per unit of production.

This does not have to be built from the ground up, however. Energy management can be weaved into the current ISO 14001 management system that so many automotive companies and suppliers currently have in place. You can continue to manage all of your environmental impacts while at the same time evaluate, measure and reduce your energy use and consumption.

Your result: real-time actionable information that can deliver cost savings internally and throughout your supply-chain.
