ISO 14064-2

Brief Description

ISO 14064-2 is an internationally recognized standard that sets forth principles, requirements, and guidance at the project level for quantifying, monitoring, and reporting activities aimed at achieving reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions or enhancements in GHG removals. This standard includes essential elements for planning GHG projects, identifying and selecting GHG sources, sinks, and reservoirs (SSRs) relevant to the project and baseline scenario, monitoring and quantifying GHG project performance, documenting and reporting results, and ensuring data quality management.

Detailed description

ISO 14064-2 plays a pivotal role in providing organizations and project developers with a structured approach to assess, manage, and report on GHG emissions reductions or removal enhancements achieved through specific projects. Developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), this standard contributes to the credibility and transparency of GHG project reporting by ensuring accuracy, consistency, and compliance with international standards.

Key aspects of ISO 14064-1 include:

  • Planning GHG Projects: The standard outlines requirements and best practices for the planning and initiation of GHG projects, including setting clear objectives and defining project boundaries.
  • Identifying GHG SSRs: ISO 14064-2 guides organizations in identifying and selecting GHG sources, sinks, and reservoirs relevant to the project and establishing a baseline scenario for comparison.
  • Monitoring and Quantifying GHG Performance: The standard specifies methodologies for monitoring, quantifying, and documenting GHG project performance, ensuring that emissions reductions or removal enhancements are accurately assessed.
  • Reporting GHG Project Results: ISO 14064-2 provides guidance on documenting and reporting the results of GHG projects, including emissions reductions, removal enhancements, and associated information.
  • Data Quality Management: The standard emphasizes the importance of managing data quality throughout the project lifecycle to maintain the integrity of GHG emissions data.

Who is it for?

ISO 14064-2 verification is applicable to organizations and project developers engaged in activities intended to achieve GHG emissions reductions or enhancements in GHG removals at the project level. It is suitable for:

  • Companies and project developers seeking to undertake GHG reduction or removal projects as part of their sustainability and climate action efforts.
  • Organizations involved in carbon offset projects or initiatives aimed at reducing their carbon footprint.
  • Entities required to report GHG project data accurately, transparently, and in compliance with international standards.

What are the benefits of verification?

  • Credibility: Verification enhances the credibility and transparency of GHG project results, making them more trustworthy to stakeholders.
  • Environmental Impact: ISO 14064-2 verification demonstrates a commitment to reducing GHG emissions and enhancing removals, contributing to environmental sustainability.
  • Compliance: Verification ensures that GHG projects are conducted in accordance with international standards and regulatory requirements.
  • Enhanced Reputation: Organizations with certified GHG projects showcase their dedication to responsible environmental practices, enhancing their reputation.
  • Competitive Advantage: Certified projects gain a competitive edge by highlighting their contribution to mitigating climate change and supporting sustainable practices.
