All you should know about ISO 14064
Why ISO 14064 is important for your Industry and how does it accounts for and reports emissions and removals of greenhouse gases?
Environmental change is perhaps the major problem society faces today. To restrict the temperature ascend to 2 degrees, worldwide ozone harming substance (GHG) discharges should be decreased. The approach organizations to add to this objective by observing and lessening their emanations is expanding. Control Union can uphold your association in doing your part as your ISO 14065 certify approval and check body (VVB).
ISO 14064 is important for a number of reasons.
- First, it provides guidance on how to account for and report emissions and the removal of greenhouse gases.
- Second, it helps ensure that organizations are consistent in their reporting of emissions and removals.
- Finally, ISO 14064 can help organizations communicate their greenhouse gas emissions and removal activities to stakeholders.
Organizations that report their emissions in accordance with ISO 14064 can be confident that they are using internationally recognized methods and providing consistent, comparable data. This is important not only for organizational purposes but also for international negotiations on climate change. When all organizations are reporting according to the same methodologies, it is easier to compare data and identify trends. ISO 14064 also provides guidance on how to set goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and removing carbon from the atmosphere. By having standardized methods for goal setting, organizations can more easily compare progress over time and identify areas where further improvement is needed. Additionally, this information can be used to inform decision-making at the organizational level about which mitigation strategies are most effective.
What is Carbon Footprint Verification (CFV)?
Carbon Footprint Verification (CFV) is a process used to confirm that an organization’s or individual’s carbon footprint meets the requirements of their selected standard. The verification is conducted by an independent, accredited CFV provider who will review the relevant documentation and, if satisfied, issue a certificate. The chosen standard will set out the specific requirements that must be met in order for verification to be successful. For example, The CarbonNeutral Protocol requires organizations to have their emissions inventory verified by an accredited provider before they can claim carbon neutrality. Verification provides assurance to stakeholders that an organization or individual’s claims regarding their carbon footprint are accurate and supported by robust evidence. This can help build trust and confidence in both the organization making the claims and the claims themselves.
CFV (Carbon Footprint Verification) is major to give believability. It consoles
- likely financial backers,
- ecological gatherings,
- the media, and
- surprisingly your rivals.
Any association that is effectively estimating, or is setting up the techniques to show up at its carbon impression, regardless of size, industry, or area, could profit from the extra meticulousness and skill the CFV cycle brings.
Carbon Footprint Verification is pertinent to a wide range of associations. Those previously detailing GHG discharges for obligatory plans need to enlarge the degree to cover the entire association. ventures which are in no time going to be brought into a compulsory GHG discharge conspire
Those that are detailing willfully to drives like the Carbon Disclosure Project are more modest associations searching for a reasonable initial phase in elevating their commitment to the climate
ISO 14064-1 – Carbon impression check:
14064-1 is the base rule for accumulating a corporate GHG stock, or, all in all, figuring the corporate carbon impression. Corporate GHG emanations can be separated in three degrees:
Degree.1: Direct discharges – Emissions straightforwardly brought about by sources possessed or constrained by your organization;
Degree.2: Indirect emanations – Emissions from bought power, steam, and warming/cooling for your tasks;
Degree.3: Indirect outflows – Emissions from sources not claimed or constrained by your organization, like emanations of your providers, business travel, and end-of-life discharges of sold items.
The decision on which degrees to incorporate relies upon your organization's requirements and where the vast majority of the discharges happen. Our help centers around confirming your yearly GHG outflows. The check is acted in accordance with ISO 14064-3 – the rule for verifiers on the most proficient method to confirm emanations. After culmination, you get a check articulation. This gives you trust in the exactness of your carbon impression cases and affirmation to your partners and financial backers. Our check benefits likewise appreciate outer acknowledgment by offices like the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).
ISO 14064-2 – Emission decrease approval/check:
14064-2 is the base rule for executing an outflow decrease project. Setting up an outflow decrease task will assist you with distinguishing openings for the decrease of your extension 1, scope 2, and additionally scope 3 discharges. We offer both approval of undertaking plans (before execution) and confirmation of outflow decreases (after execution). Getting your undertaking plan approved by Control Union gives you the affirmation that the progressions you are intending to carry out will really bring about decreased outflows. Confirmation of the emanation decreases after the task execution gives you and your partner affirmation of the genuinely accomplished discharge decreases.
At times, emanation decreases are even qualified to be changed over into carbon credits. These credits can be sold as balances to organizations that need or need to remunerate their own discharges. There are a few norms that issue carbon acknowledgment, each with its own concentration and task prerequisites. To guarantee the nature of those credits, norms require outsider approval of venture plans before execution, and outsider check of the acknowledged outflow decreases after execution. We presently offer approval and confirmation of carbon balance projects under the standard.
- How you advantage
- Follow current and future guidelines for outflows detailing
- Lessen costs by distinguishing openings for discharge decrease
- Defend the validity and trustworthiness of your supportability claims
- Fabricate trust with your partners
- Fulfill needs of financial backers, society, and purchasers
