The ISO 50001 standard uses a structure of ten clauses called Annex SL which, roughly grouped together, cover four key areas:

  1. Energy management – the processes your business must follow to identify, monitor and reduce energy usage. Unlike the other sections, not all areas will be applicable to your business

  2. Management Responsibility – the areas your management team need to focus on, be involved with and be accountable for

  3. Resource Management – how resources such as people, infrastructure and facilities must be assigned to ensure the best possible performance

  4. Measurement, Analysis and Improvement – how you can determine if your Management System is working as expected, facilitating the continual improvement of your system
