Answer: ISO 27001 certificates may be defined in terms of processes/services, organizational units or locations (the ISMS scope), and a single certification may cover multiple locations, also called sites. For example, you can have an organization's HQ and its filial covered by a single ISO 27001 certificate, resulting in one certification and two sites.
