An awards program has been created to recognize organizations that are transforming their businesses through ISO 50001, which applies to energy management systems certification.
The Energy Management Leadership Awards program was established by The Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM)—a global forum consisting of 24 countries and the European Commission.
The awards aim to raise global awareness of the benefits of energy management and accelerate uptake of the management system to support corporate, national, and global climate goals.
Industrial, commercial, and public-sector companies or facilities that hold a valid, third-party-verified ISO 50001 certificate are eligible to enter. To enter, organizations are required to submit a case study that describes their energy management experience and the benefits of doing so. The entries will be evaluated by an independent panel of international experts.
The winning organizations will be recognized in 2017 during the Clean Energy Ministerial meeting in China, which will host energy ministers and corporate leaders from around the world.
Each organization to submit a qualifying entry will receive an Energy Management Insight Award for helping to build global insight on the benefits of energy management systems. The top-ranking submissions from each country will also be shared with the appropriate governments.
