Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council was recently awarded the ISO50001 accreditation for their outstanding energy management! Merthyr Tydfil is the first local authority in Wales to achieve this recognition, and one of the very few public bodies in the UK to do so.

The five sites included within the Certification are:

  • The Civic Centre
  • Unit 5
  • Unit 20
  • Merthyr Tydfil Leisure Centre
  • Cyfarthfa High School

ISO 50001 provides a framework for organisations to deliver energy efficiency and carbon reductions by focussing on best practise in energy management.

This standard plays a crucial role in helping organisations improve their energy performance and reduce carbon emissions by implementing effective energy management practices. By providing a systematic approach to energy management, ISO 50001 enables businesses to identify and prioritize energy-saving opportunities, ultimately leading to cost savings and environmental benefits. The framework outlined in ISO 50001 encourages a culture of continuous improvement, promoting the adoption of best practices in energy efficiency. Overall, this standard serves as a valuable tool for organisations looking to enhance their sustainability efforts and contribute to a greener future.

To achieve certification, an organisation must demonstrate clear processes for successful energy management including an approved energy policy, robust data, achievable targets and defined action plans to deliver on aims.

Judith Jones, Director of Neighbourhood Services commented: “Congratulations to all those involved in securing this incredible certification for Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council. It's wonderful to see the commitment to sustainable practices and the effort to reduce energy consumption.

“This achievement not only showcases the council's dedication to decarbonisation but also sets a great example for other organisations. Keep up the great work in making a positive impact on the community and the environment! Well done!”
