50001 Ready Canada recognized Industrial facilities and buildings

50001 recognition page group photo.

The 50001 Ready Canada program recognizes Canadian industrial facilities and commercial and institutional buildings that attest to the implementation of an ISO 50001-based energy management system. The program is a self-paced, no-cost way for facilities and buildings to create a culture of structured energy improvement that leads to deeper and sustained savings and does not require external audits or certifications.

50001 Ready Canada recognition recipients have:

  • committed to maintain and continually improve the energy performance of their facility or building.
  • completed the 25 tasks in the Navigator tool
  • documented their facility or building energy usage and improvement

50001 Ready Canada recognition does not indicate that an organization’s 50001 Ready project is conformant to the ISO 50001 standard or that it will pass an ISO 50001 audit. However, a facility or building becoming Ready recognized is good preparation for ISO 50001 certification.

Industrial facilities and buildings can showcase their success by renewing recognition annually at no cost.
