Congratulations to JRP’s newly qualified ISO 50001 Lead Auditor

We are delighted to announce that JRP Consultant, George Barnes, has qualified as a lead auditor for the energy management system ISO 50001.

Posted on 08 March 2021.

Already an ESOS Lead Auditor, George has now been trained how to carry out a full external ISO 50001 audit. Essentially, it means that he can think like an external auditor and pre-empt their approach to JRP’s clients’ ISO 50001 energy management system audits, ensuring the systems we put in place are especially robust and effective.

George implemented JRP’s own ISO 50001 compliant energy management system and is currently working with two multinational organisations on their own ISO 50001 approach.

Since joining JRP in 2013 as a graduate trainee, George has worked hard to build his knowledge, skill set and qualifications and in 2020 was honoured to be elected chair of the Independent Energy Consultants’ group (IECg) of the Energy Services and Technology Association (ESTA). IECg members provide the expertise to assist organisations with all aspects of energy procurement, management, standards and legal compliance.  George worked alongside the previous chair of the group, Jes Rutter, to support the Energy Conscious Organisation (EnCo) initiative and is committed to promoting behaviour change as an integral and critical part of an organisation’s road to Net Zero.

Shortlisted for the Edie 2020 Rising Sustainability Star award, George is passionate about using his drive and ambition to effect real change to reduce organisations’ energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. He hopes to carry this early achievement through to the rest of his professional career, pushing boundaries and facilitating meaningful change to minimise the impact we all have on the world around us.
