About the Seminar
Climate change is a defining challenge of our time, affecting each and every one of us. For a more sustainablefuture, there is a need for community-wide action to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.In Hong Kong, electricity generation is a major source of GHG emissions, accounting for over 60% of the totallocal emissions. Close to 90% of our city’s electricity is consumed in buildings. A concerted effort acrossdifferent sectors to maximise energy efficiency in buildings will help to combat climate change.In 2011, the International Organisation for Standardisation released ISO 50001 as a globally accepted framework for energy management. This international standard is applicable to organisations of all sizes
and sectors for setting up a suitable energy management system (EnMS). With an ISO 50001-based EnMS,an organisation can measure and monitor its energy use, identify where to improve energy efficiency, andtake actions accordingly. Not only will it lead to operational cost savings, it will also help to enhance market competitiveness.

Third-party certification to ISO 50001 is one step further – ensuring the organisation’s compliance of its EnMS with international standard and demonstrating a commitment to environmental sustainability. Some local certification bodies have started offering ISO 50001 EnMS certification services nowadays in response to
market needs.Promoting joint effort in enhancing energy efficiency for a “low-carbon” Hong Kong, this seminar will bring together various local experts to share the concepts of ISO 50001 EnMS and relevant certification as well as some success stories.
