The audits required to comply with ESOS enable you to gather vital data on energy consumption and identify ways to reduce energy use and carbon emissions. These reports and data can help you to assess your carbon footprint, implement effective net zero strategies and, over time, monitor progress towards your net zero goal.
Besides carrying out regular audits, there are other ways to achieve ESOS compliance, which provide wider benefits for your business. One of these is ISO 50001 certification. ISO 50001 is the internationally recognised standard for energy management systems (EnMS). If your business is fully certified to ISO 50001, it will automatically comply with ESOS. What’s more, ISO 50001 is a long-term cost and resource-efficient way to meet the requirements of many other regulations, such as SECR and CCA – without the need to appoint separate specialists to comply with each scheme. It provides a framework for establishing best practices in energy management and for creating a net zero roadmap.
