GLASGOW, SCOTLAND – Dec. 01, 2016 — / — iomart has added another important accreditation to its extensive portfolio of industry standards – ISO 50001:2011, the international standard for Energy Management Systems.

ISO 50001 is the standard for energy use and consumption. It provides a framework to integrate energy efficiency into the daily operations of global companies. Obtaining this standard demonstrates that iomart’s approach to energy management complies with the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) and meets the objectives of the Climate Change Agreement (CCA).

Steve Flockhart, Head of Information Assurance and Compliance for iomart, said: “Performance and compliance are key requirements for any business moving to the cloud.  Achieving ISO 50001 means our customers can be sure that energy efficiency and environmental management are important drivers for how we manage the resources and assets we have within our data centres and how we deliver our services.”

Along with ISO 14001, the standard for Environmental Management Systems, achieving ISO 50001 means that iomart is one of the cloud companies leading the way in its approach to energy and environmental management.  iomart works with Schneider Electric to analyse energy efficiency across its multiple UK data centres and to ensure it meets regulatory requirements.

Steve Wilhite, Senior Vice President of Energy & Sustainability Services — — at Schneider Electric said: “In any industry,energy and environmental management make business sense but efficiency and reliability are often seen as at odds.iomart has proven otherwise. ISO 50001 certification just adds to the steps it’s taken to deliver always-on services whileoptimising the use of energy and other critical resources.”
