What is ISO 14064?
In parallel with the emergence of regulated or mandatory schemes relating to monitoring, reporting and verification of Greenhouse Gases (GHG), organisations outside of these schemes are now increasingly wishing to monitor and report their emissions (commonly referred to as the organisation’s carbon footprint). In response to this demand and to provide an international standard against which such reports can be voluntarily verified, ISO 14064 has been developed.
ISO 14064 has been prepared in three parts:
ISO 14064, part 1: This details the principles and requirements for designing, developing, managing and reporting organisation level GHG inventories. It includes requirements for quantifying emissions and removals, requirements and guidance on management and reporting of the GHG inventory, as well as the organisation's responsibilities for verification.
ISO 14064, part 2: This focuses on GHG projects or project based activities specifically designed to reduce GHG emissions or increase GHG removals. It includes principles and requirements for determining project baseline scenarios and for monitoring, quantifying and reporting project performance relative to that baseline and provides the basis for GHG projects to be validated and verified.
ISO 14064, part 3: This part of ISO 14064 provides principles, requirements and guidance for those conducting GHG information validation and verification. It describes a process for providing assurance to intended users that an organization's or project's GHG assertions are complete, accurate, consistent, transparent and without material discrepancies.
Gap analysis - against ISO 14064 parts 1 or 2
Verification - of an organisation’s GHG assertions, claims and reports against ISO 14064, part 1.
Validation and verification - of GHG projects against ISO 14064, part 2.
Training - to help you implement this standard into your organisation, public and in-house training is available.
Implementation Workshops - facilitated workshops aimed at providing training to your organisation on how to develop a process to implement and manage these issues.
