SABS eCommitteesBuy a standard


An effective Energy Management System (EnMS) is one that adopts a holistic view of economic development, and strives to balance financial gains with sustainable use of the environment and its natural resources.

It involves developing and implementing an energy policy, setting targets for energy use and designing action plans to reach them. This can include implementing new energy efficient technologies, reducing energy waste or improving current processes to cut energy costs.

The effectiveness of a company’s energy management system is always illustrated through its objectives in striving to reduce its impact on the atmosphere, land, water and biodiversity.

Additionally, seeking certification of one’s energy management system provides security for a company’s operations access to markets and assurance that the system is audited accordingly and thus is internationally recognised.
