Climate Change and Energy Services

ISO 50001

ISO 50001:2011 specifies requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an energy management system, whose purpose is to enable an organization to follow a systematic approach in achieving continual improvement of energy performance, including energy efficiency, energy use and consumption.

ISO 50001:2011 specifies requirements applicable to energy use and consumption, including measurement, documentation and reporting, design and procurement practices for equipment, systems, processes and personnel that contribute to energy performance.

ISO 50001:2011 applies to all variables affecting energy performance that can be monitored and influenced by the organization. ISO 50001:2011 does not prescribe specific performance criteria with respect to energy.


Green Resources helps clients establish a process, build organizational capacity to measure, analyze and monitor their GHG emissions that help organizations build climate change mitigation strategy. The analysis typical includes life cycle energy use and greenhouse gas emissions of product and services.

Green Resources uses applicable international standards (including ISO 14040 series, PAS 2050 and other standards in development like WRI product carbon footprint standards) for life cycle GHG assessment (LCA). Green Resources also helps companies create GHG management plans to reduce emissions. Clients have started opting for Carbon Neutrality based on GHG protocol and PAS 2060 guidelines.

The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is one of the flexibility mechanisms defined in the Kyoto Protocol (IPCC, 2007) that provides for emissions reduction projects which generate Certified Emission Reduction units which may be traded in emissions trading schemes.

The CDM is defined in Article 12 of the Protocol, and is intended to meet two objectives:

  • ◉  to assist parties not included in Annex I in achieving sustainable development and in contributing to the ultimate objective of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which is to prevent dangerous climate change; and
  • ◉  to assist parties included in Annex I in achieving compliance with their quantified emission limitation and reduction commitments (greenhouse gas (GHG) emission caps). "Annex I" parties are those countries that are listed in Annex I of the treaty, and are the industrialized countries. Non-Annex I parties are developing countries.


An energy audit is an inspection, survey and analysis of energy flows for energy conservation in a building, process or system to reduce the amount of energy input into the system without negatively affecting the output(s).

The purpose of an energy audit is to analyze the energy flows in a building, and understand its energy dynamics. During the energy audit, the auditor looks for opportunities to reduce the amount of energy input into the building without negatively affecting the output(s). Beyond simply identifying the sources of energy use, an energy audit seeks to prioritize the energy uses according to the greatest to least cost effective opportunities for energy savings.
