It will give you an overview of ISO 14064-1:2018, an international standard that specifies principles and requirements at the organisation level for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals. Similarities and differences between the ISO 14064 and the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.

You will learn about what the updated ISO 14064 standard covers and guide you through the changes:

  • Boundary setting and consolidation approaches
  • Inventory development and structure
  • Emission Sources and classification under the updated ISO 14064 standard
  • Audit requirements for verification of your inventory
  • Common pitfalls, errors and how you navigate your team to get the data you need to make informed decisions and take action on “SDG 13 – Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts”.
