ISO 14064: Greenhouse Gas Accounting Verification

Request an ISO 14064 Guideline document


What is a Greenhouse Gas Accounting / Carbon Footprint?

Climate change is one of the most critical global environmental issues which we face today. In an effort to address climate change, numerous voluntary and regulatory greenhouse gas (GHG) programs have evolved across the globe. In our country, central and state government regulation on measurement, reporting and verifications (MRV) of GHG emission inventories/ reductions is imminent. Business therefore faces increasingly complex requirements for identifying and reporting GHG emissions and achieving reduction targets. Stakeholders expect companies to publicly reveal their performance concerning climate change and other sustainability issues. Businesses must decide how to respond to growing demand for environmental and social accountability.

What is ISO 14064:2006?

The ISO 14064 is a standard for Quantification, Reporting & Verification of Greenhouse Gas Emission. It is supposed to be captured into 3 different parts..

Greenhouse gases - Part 1: Specification with guidance at the organization level for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and removals (ISO 14064-1).

Greenhouse gases - Part 2: Specification with guidance at the project level for quantification, monitoring and reporting of greenhouse gas emission reductions and removal enhancements (ISO 14064-2).

Greenhouse gases - Part 3: Specification with guidance for the validation and verification of greenhouse gas assertions (ISO 14064-3).

ISO 14064 Know More

Why is ISO developing a climate change standard?

First and foremost, ISO is developing a GHG standard because climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing nations, governments, businesses and citizens. Climate change can potentially have an impact on environmental, social and economic systems. As such, government and multi-stakeholder initiatives are being developed to limit GHG emissions through various regulatory schemes and incentive programs such as trading, taxes, voluntary incentive programs, international treaties and carbon sequestration projects. Examples include: California Climate Action Registry, EU GHG Emissions Trading Scheme, US EPA Climate Leaders, Climate Neutral Network, Australia GHG Challenge, UK Emissions Trading Scheme, to name a few. Most of these initiatives rely upon sound quantification of GHG emissions and/or removals. ISO seeks to provide a standard that provides clear and consistent specifications for quantifying, monitoring, reporting and verifying GHGs.

How will my business benefit from the 14064 standard?

The international GHG standard will enable businesses to measure and report their GHG emissions consistently with the rest of the world. International corporations will be able to prepare global inventories using a single set of rules and procedures. All companies will have the ability to compare themselves against their counterparts throughout the world in terms of GHG performance, potentially leveraging their exemplary GHG emission performance into a competitive advantage.

ISO 14064 is also expected to support the following:

  • Creation of comparable GHG units
  • Consistency and transparency in reporting
  • Improved management of GHG related liabilities and assets
  • Support of GHG unit trading
  • Facilitated participation in voluntary GHG initiatives
