Rapid Climate Change Creates Need for Greenhouse Gas Standards Revisions

Because the climate is ever changing, the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) has decided to revise its greenhouse gas standards to meet current and future market needs.

The ISO’s greenhouse gas standards began in 2006 to help programs reduce greenhouse gas emissions and emissions trading. The ISO Technical Committee is currently making revisions to the following standards:

ISO 14064-1   Greenhouse gases -- Part 1: “Specification with guidance at the organization level for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and removals will address some key GHG quantification issues and will include a more standardized reporting frame.”

ISO 14064-2 Greenhouse gases -- Part 2: “Specification with guidance at the project level for quantifcation, monitoring and reporting of greenhouse gas emission reductions or removal enhancements will be expanded to be applicable to carbon credit and innovative technology projects, and projects internal to organizations.”

ISO 14064-3 Greenhouse gases -- Part 3: “Specification with guidance for the validation and verification of greenhouse gas assertions and 14065 Greenhouse gases: Requirements for greenhouse gas validation and verification bodies for use in accreditation or other forms of recognition are standards used by greenhouse gas programmes around the world and will be revised to ensure they are as up to date as possible and to serve new market needs such as product carbon footprint verifications.”
