The approach to energy has a significant effect on the surroundings. Taking a responsible approach to energy consumption within your organization is better for the environment, good for your reputation and also reduces your energy costs. By improving our energy efficiency, we can minimize our impact on the world around us. This is stimulated by the European Energy Directive (EED): European energy guidelines that must be followed by all organizations with more than 250 employees and an annual turnover of more than €50 million. In the Netherlands, the local environmental authorities check whether companies comply with the EED. ISO 50001 certification enables you to demonstrate that you meet all the EED requirements.
