ISO 14064-1:2006 (Greenhouse Gases)
The ISO 14064-1 norm is a climate policy neutral which addresses the quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals on an organizational level. It includes requirements for the design, development, management, reporting and verification of an organization’s GHG inventory.
STRUCTURE OF ISO 14064
Consists of three components:
- Specification with guidance at the organization level for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and removals
- Specifying principles and requirements for determining baselines, and for quantifying, monitoring and reporting project performance relative to the baseline
- pecification with guidance for the validation and verification of greenhouse gas assertions
GHG Protocol: Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard is designed to improve the rigor, quality, and user-friendly. It provides step by step guidance on calculating GHG emissions from specific sources (e.g., stationary and mobile combustion, process emissions) and industry sectors (e.g., cement, pulp and paper aluminum, iron and steel and office-based organizations). It covers the accounting and reporting of the Six Greenhouse Gases:
- Perfluorotributylamine (PFTBA)
- ater Vapor
- Nitrous oxide
- Promote greater consistency, transparency and quality in corporate GHG accounting and reporting practices through the use of standardized approaches and principle.
- Simplify and reduce the costs of corporate GHG accounting
- Provide business with information that can be used to build an effective strategy to manage and reduce emissions
- Provide information that facilitates business participation in different GHG programs, including trading, registries, and other GHG reduction efforts
- Increase consistency in GHG accounting and reporting between different GHG programs
