ISO developed a standard to provide a set of unambiguous and verifiable requirements to support organizations’ Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission reduction projects.
ISO 14064 resulted from several years of detailed study and engagement with the international community of governmental and business organizations with a stake in climate change. It has been developed by Working Group (WG) 5 on Climate Change of ISO Technical Committee (TC) 207, which is also responsible for ISO 14001 and its family of environmental management standards.
ISO 14064 objectives are:
- Enhance environmental integrity by promoting consistency, transparency and credibility in GHG quantification, monitoring, reporting and verification
- Enable organizations to identify and manage GHG-related liabilities, assets and risks
- Facilitate the trade of GHG allowances or credits
- Support the design, development and implementation of comparable and consistent GHG schemes or programs
