October 22, 2012 (Newswire) - AESG, a leading energy and sustainability consultancy in the Middle East, today announced that it has signed an agreement with Vincotte, a global leader in management systems, to jointly provide consultancy and implementation services for the new ISO 50001 Standard for Energy Management. The partnership enables the companies to be among the first in the region to offer services for the new ISO standards, with clients benefiting from the combined expertise in both the technical and management systems aspects of energy management.
AESG has seen an increasing environmental awareness in the Middle East and believes the ISO standard will greatly help organizations achieve their sustainability goals.
