New Standard for Greenhouse Gas Assessment Released

Published: Monday, April 3, 2006 - 22:00

The International Organization for Standardization recently published a new standard designed for the assessment and reduction of greenhouse gases. ISO 14064 is offered as a solution to the problems posed by governments and businesses, which have used varying approaches to assess greenhouse gas (GHG) production and removal. The standard is the product of three years of work and includes insights from 175 international experts from 45 countries and 11 international businesses.

“ISO’s goal is to provide a set of unambiguous and verifiable requirements or specifications to support organizations and proponents of GHG reduction projects,” says Chan Kook Weng, convener of the ISO working group that developed the standard. “ISO 14064 will provide clarity and consistency between those reporting GHG emissions and stakeholders.”

The standard includes three parts and will be complemented by ISO 14065, which will specify requirements to accredit or otherwise recognize bodies that undertake GHG validation or verification using ISO 14064 or other relevant standards. ISO 14065 is expected to be published in early 2007.
