ISO50001 Ireland is an industry conference which will bring together approximately 120 senior management from Irish Business who are considering the transition to this International energy standard, but have yet to make the journey.

The theme/profile of this event is simply to create an exchange of information between organisations who are about to make the transition to ISO50001 and companies who have already made the transition. Our speakers have been carefully selected based on their experiences and knowledge of this standard and are keen to network with delegates in an effort to develop the standard further within Ireland.
