The sneak preview of ISO 50001:2011 – the first ISO standard on Energy Management System was successfully held yesterday July 12, 2011 at Dusit Thani Hotel, Makati City. The training was conducted by APEX Global in partnership with TUV Rheinland – the certifying body in the field of quality and environmental management systems.
ISO 50001:2011 has been released at the most opportune time for organizations to streamline their energy practices and utilize the guidelines for tangible energy savings. Sonny Tapia, Senior Consultant of ECC International facilitated the workshop with his expertise in the deployment and implementation of Quality Management Systems anchored on ISO standards.
Thirty-six delegates from companies across various industries from education to manufacturing attended the training which provided an overview of the guidelines, requirements and its relevance to other management systems. To give the participants an interactive and lasting learning experience, they were provided with an ECHO CD, ISO 50001 Practitioner’s Guide, and an Energy Calculator which allows them to perform an assessment of their current energy consumption and identify energy saving opportunities.
Some of the participants’ testimonials are:
