The Colusa-Miliket Foodstuff Joint Stock Company (JSC) has become one of the first businesses to achieve an ISO 50001 in energy management system certification. This certificate has proven to be an effective solution to bring greater economic efficiency for businesses.
Expert Nguyen Kinh Luan said that the implementation of reasonable and effective energy usage could bring higher profits at minimal cost, contributing to improving business competitiveness. The application of energy management systems in businesses has contributed to minimizing production costs and negative impacts on the environment as well as improving the image and reputation of the company.

After the Law on Energy Conservation and Efficiency took effect, businesses, particularly big-name companies, and production facilities began paying more attention to energy management and energy-saving. Although a large number of businesses have set up energy management systems, few of them have achieved an ISO 50001 energy management system certificate. Energy audit activities and energy management systems play an important role in the field of energy conservation and efficiency.
