Background on the topic:

This Standard addresses the topic of energy. An organization can consume energy in various forms, such as fuel, electricity, heating, cooling, or steam. Energy can be self-generated or purchased from external sources and it can come from renewable sources such as wind, hydro, or solar or from non-renewable sources such as coal, petroleum, or natural gas.

Using energy more efficiently and opting for renewable energy sources is essential for combating climate change and for lowering an organizationā€™s overall environmental footprint. Energy consumption can also occur throughout the upstream and downstream activities connected with an organizationā€™s operations. This can include consumersā€™ use of products the organization sells and the end-of-life

treatment of these products.
