  • A stronger emphasis on the responsibility of leadership
  • Clarification of key concepts related to energy performance
  • Improved compatibility with ISO 14001 and other ISO management system standards
  • Improved sections on data collection and normalization
  • The realignment of the content of the standard to the high level structure
