As part of CERN’s commitment to responsible energy management, the Organization began the ISO 50001 certification process in 2022. The certification was officially awarded on 2 February 2023 for a period of three years, i.e. until 1 February 2026.

ISO 50001 is the benchmark international standard for implementing systems and processes to continually improve energy performance. It entails setting up, monitoring and improving an energy management system – which is aligned with CERN’s Energy Policy – and with relevant legislation.
