Similarities and differences between the ISO 14064 and the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.

You will learn about what the recently 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”.
