What is the Energy Management Gold Standard

The Energy Management Gold Standard is a certification system delivered under the ASEAN Energy Management Scheme (AEMAS) based on excellence in energy management. Malaysian Green Technology Corporation (MGTC) has been appointed by the ASEAN Centre of Energy (ACE) as the certification body for EMGS in Malaysia.

EMGS provides organisations with a sustainable energy management system where cost savings are not only achieved but maintained and improved. Under the EMGS, companies will also get comprehensive training for their energy managers who will lead their company in energy efficiency goals.

EMGS is regional certification owned by the ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE). The program was officially launched in 2011 and was supported by the European Commission and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP).  To date, the EMGS program has helped to mitigate 54 kilo tonnes of CO2e annually compared to respective energy baselines and saved RM 34 million annually.
