ISO 14064-1:2018 – Greenhouse Gases Specification Management

There is a need for an effective and progressive response to the urgent threat of climate change based on the best available scientific knowledge. ISO produces documents that support the transformation of scientific knowledge into tools that will help address climate change.

GHG mitigation initiatives rely on quantifying, monitoring, reporting, and verifying GHG emissions and removals.

The ISO 14060 family provides clarity and consistency for quantifying, monitoring, reporting, and validating or verifying GHG emissions and removals to support sustainable development through a low-carbon economy and to benefit organizations, project proponents, and interested parties worldwide. Specifically, the use of the ISO 14060 family:

  • Enhances the environmental integrity of GHG quantification;
  • Enhances the credibility, consistency, and transparency of GHG quantification, monitoring, reporting, verification, and validation;
  • Facilitates the development and implementation of GHG management strategies and plans;
  • Facilitates the development and implementation of mitigation actions through emission reductions or removal enhancements;
  • Facilitates the ability to track performance and progress in reducing GHG emissions or increasing GHG removals.

Applications of the ISO 14060 family include:

  • Corporate decisions, such as identifying emission reduction opportunities and increasing profitability by reducing energy consumption;
  • Risks and opportunities management, such as climate-related risks, including financial, regulatory, supply chain, product and customer, litigation, reputational risks, and its opportunity for business (e.g., new market, new business model);
  • Voluntary initiatives, such as participation in voluntary GHG registries or sustainability reporting initiatives;
  • GHG markets, such as the buying and selling of GHG allowances or credits;
  • Regulatory/government GHG programs, such as credit for early action, agreements, or national and local reporting initiatives.

ISO 14064-12018 Certification

What is ISO 14064-1:2018?

ISO 14064-1 outlines the principles and requirements for designing, developing, managing, and reporting organizational-level GHG inventories. It guides establishing organizational boundaries, identifying and categorizing GHG sources and sinks, selecting appropriate quantification methods, and compiling and reporting GHG inventory data.
The standard emphasizes the importance of accuracy, completeness, consistency, transparency, and relevance in GHG reporting. It also promotes using internationally recognized calculation methodologies and data quality management procedures. By following ISO 14064-1, organizations can enhance the credibility and comparability of their GHG inventories, thereby supporting informed decision-making, regulatory compliance, and communication with stakeholders.
It’s important to note that ISO 14064-1:2018 is specific to GHG inventories at the organizational level and does not cover product-level or project-level GHG assessments, which are addressed in ISO 14064-2 and ISO 14064-3, respectively.
