To provide an introduction and tools for using the ISO 50001 standard, CIET will be presenting a webinar that will be available publicly.  
The ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems Standard promotes the integration of energy efficiency into management practices to increase awareness about energy use, reinforce good energy management behaviours, and make better use of existing energy consuming assets and processes. Requiring organizations to take a series of seven concrete actions, ISO 50001 has been used successfully used by many organizations to reduce energy costs and GHG emissions while offering other derivative environmental and competitive benefits. 
The ISO 50001 101 webinar covers the basics on how to establish a successful energy management system in an organization. During this one-hour webinar, participants will be provided with an overview of the standard, which will enable them to contextualize their role and work to become an integral part of their organization’s success. It also covers the benefits to Canada, organizations, and the actors involved, available funding support at the federal and provincial levels, and a brief overview of the software used to help  implement the standard.
