ISO 14064 is an international greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions accounting standard. The document provides guidance on how businesses and organisations can account for their emissions, including setting up a system to track and report emissions data. The standard covers all types of emissions, including greenhouse gases (GHGs) such as carbon dioxide (CO2).

Implementing ISO 14064 can help businesses and organisations to improve their environmental performance by providing a framework for measuring, monitoring and reporting emissions data. It can also help organisations to communicate their emissions reductions to stakeholders, and to verify their emissions claims.

Organisations that implement ISO 14064 can use the standard to:

– understand their emissions profile;

– set emissions reduction targets;

– track progress towards those targets;

– report emissions data to stakeholders; and

– verify their emissions claims.

ISO 14064 is part of a suite of emissions accounting standards, which also includes ISO 14065 (for emissions verification) and ISO 14066 (for emissions inventories). Together, these standards provide a comprehensive framework for emissions accounting and reporting.

What are the ISO 14064 standards?

The standards aim to improve the transparency and comparability of greenhouse gas data and to provide a robust foundation for emissions trading schemes and other climate change mitigation initiatives.

There are three parts to the ISO 14064 standards:

* Part 1: Specifies requirements for quantifying, monitoring and reporting GHG emissions and removals

* Part 2: Provides guidance on GHG project accounting

* Part 3: Specifies requirements for verifying GHG emissions reductions or removal enhancements claims made by organisations

Organisations that comply with the ISO 14064 standards can demonstrate their commitment to reducing their greenhouse gas emissions, and can provide assurance to stakeholders that their data is reliable and comparable.
