ISO 50001 is not a piece of software or an outline; it’s a structure which goes right to the heart of the way that your business uses energy. It’s designed to implement, establish and maintain a continuous standard of energy reduction. As an internationally-recognised standard, UK companies with a global reach can implement the same standard at their offices all over the world.

Improving the environment and the buildings in which we live and work continues to be a major focus in planning. David Cameron’s recent highlighting of the limitations of post-war housing estates and the need to create affordable housing in a more sustainable environment has highlighted the impact that better homes can make on quality of life. By focusing on energy requirements and sustainability in the conception stage and early planning, new and improved developments can be created.
