Learn how and when to remove this template message The ISO standard published in is part of the ISO series of International Standards for environmental management. The ISO standard provides governments, businesses, regions and other organisations with a complimentary set of tools for programs to quantify, monitor, report and verify greenhouse gas emissions. The ISO standard supports organisations to participate in both regulated and voluntary programs such as emissions trading schemes and public reporting using a globally recognised standard. Structure of Standard[ edit ] The Standard is published in three parts:  ISO specifies principles and requirements at the organization level for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas GHG emissions and removals. ISO specifies principles and requirements and provides guidance at the project level for quantification, monitoring and reporting of activities intended to cause greenhouse gas GHG emission reductions or removal enhancements. It includes requirements for planning a GHG project, identifying and selecting GHG sources, sinks and reservoirs relevant to the project and baseline scenario, monitoring, quantifying, documenting and reporting GHG project performance and managing data quality.

Brad Kelechava Leave a comment Climate change is a global issue. Therefore, numerous international standards enable companies to monitor their impact. ISO , which exists in three parts, two of which were revised in , addresses a range of interrelated concepts that help organizations measure and manage greenhouse gas GHG emissions and reduction activities.
Greenhouse gases have existed in various atmospheric concentrations throughout natural history, adjusting the temperatures of the earth by absorbing and releasing energy in the atmosphere. However, since the Industrial Revolution, humans have played a significant role in this once-natural process. By burning fossil fuels, anthropogenic activities have permitted substantial amounts of carbon dioxide to enter the atmosphere. In , atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations were at As of March , atmospheric CO2 was at The impact of rising greenhouse gas levels is multifold.
Part 1 of this standard, ISO , was revised in Furthermore, it helps to assure that greenhouse gas-related information is a true and fair account.
Specifically, this standard covers guidance for planning a GHG project, identifying and selecting GHG sources, sinks and reservoirs SSRs relevant to the project and baseline scenario, managing data quality, and monitoring, quantifying, documenting, and reporting GHG project performance. ISO , like parts 1 and 3 of the ISO standard, revises the first, edition of the same document.
The second, edition of ISO has undergone the following changes: The concept of additionality and the baseline scenario were changed. Text regarding the Kyoto mechanism was deleted. Compared to the previous two standards, Part 3 of has been subject to the most changes from its corresponding first edition. Definitions of verification and validation, as well as some other key terms, were changed. This new section is applicable to future estimates of emissions, removals, emission reductions, and removal enhancements.
This helps to provide assurance on assumptions, limitations, and methods used to develop a GHG statement. Guidance on the use levels of assurance were added. Posted Under.
