For organisational and project level GHG assertions
The Paris Agreement, aims at undertaking ambitious efforts to combat climate change and adapt to its effects. Bases the agreement, signatory countries pledged to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and achieve a climate neutral world by the mid-century.
ISO 14064-1 specifies principles and requirements at the organization level for quantifying and reporting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals. It includes provisions for the design, development, management, reporting, and verification of an organization's GHG inventory.
PROJECT VALIDATION AND VERIFICATION
ISO 14064-2 specifies principles and requirements and provides guidance at the project level for quantification, monitoring, and reporting 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.
Measuring and evaluating your organisation’s carbon footprint is a key step on the path to a sustainable business practice. Effective carbon management reveals how your organisation can reduce emissions. It also verifies your effective results. This means that your company profits through improved efficiency and greater public approval of your Corporate Social Responsibility agenda.
Carbon footprint measures and evaluates the total greenhouse gas emissions caused by, or expected from, your operations. Beyond identifying the main sources of emissions, it triggers innovations to reduce the consumption of energy and raw materials.
Carbon footprints take two forms. They can be viewed as a company-wide Corporate Carbon Footprint (CCF) based on 14064-1. Alternatively, a Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) based on PAS 2050 covers the entire lifecycle of a specific product or service, including the supply chain, use and disposal.
At TÜV SÜD, we provide a better understanding of GHG emission impacts across your business value chain, organisational level and/or product life cycle by conducting independent validation and verification of organisational and project level GHG assertions.
