The 2nd Level Assessment
The organisation will be assessed on its ability to sustain the 7 criteria from the EMGS 1-Star Certification. The Opportunities for Improvements (OFI) closed in the EMGS 1-Star assessment will be verified and reviewed along with the minimum of 5% energy reduction requirement. Before applying for the 2-Star assessment, there is a minimum waiting period of one year after the completion of the 1-Star assessment so that all of the required energy management activities are carried out by the organisation.
