Energy Policy

The energy policy is a cornerstone for implementing and energy performance within its scope
and boundaries. The policy provides a statement of the high-level overview of managements
intent that members of the organization should apply to their work activities. The policy also
provides a framework for an organization to set energy objectives and targets and associated
energy management action plans to further improve its energy performance. ISO 50001 requires
an organization to at least state the following commitments in the energy policy:

Continual improvement in energy performance;

Availability of information and of necessary resources to achieve objectives and targets;
Compliance with relevant legislation and other requirements related to energy use,
consumption and efficiency.

For example, management should deal with energy efficiency, the availability of information and
resources to meet the objectives and targets.

6. Performance Audit

With respect to monitoring of the key characteristics, the organization should review all
significant energy uses to determine which aspects should be monitored in order to check that the
controls are being effective. The results help management define appropriate energy performance
improvement actions. A monitoring schedule could be drafted in order to facilitate the
monitoring activities. This audit should include:

a) Significant thermal energy uses and other outputs of the energy review;
b) The relevant variables related to significant thermal energy uses;
c) The effectiveness of the action plans in achieving objectives and targets; and
d) Evaluation of actual versus expected energy consumption.

7. Management Review

Good environmental management is necessary to ensure sustainability of the palm oil producing
industry. To achieve reduced environmental impacts from palm oil processing, the environmental
management practice has to be integrated into the production process management system and
include efficient use of natural resources.
When conducting management review, the organization should also take into account the concept
of continual improvement, which is achieved by evaluating the energy performance against the
policies, objectives and targets. The management review should also address external issues
relevant to the energy performance of the organization and identify opportunities for
improvement and where appropriate changes of emphasis or direction.
