Climate change has been identified as one of the greatest challenges facing nations, governments, businesses and citizens over future decades. Climate change has implications for both human and natural systems and could lead to significant changes in resource use, production and economic activity. In response, international, regional, national, and local initiatives are being developed and implemented to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations in the Earth's atmosphere. Such GHG initiatives rely on the quantification, monitoring, reporting and verification of GHG emissions and/or removals. While principles and requirements for the design, development, management, and reporting of GHG inventories at the organization or company level are described in detail in ISO 14064-1, ISO 14064-2 refers to the project level. ISO 14064-2 specifies principles and requirements for quantification, monitoring, and reporting of activities intended to cause GHG emission reductions or enhancements in the removal of greenhouse gas, and provides guidance at the project level. 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. The final part, ISO 14064-3, specifies principles and requirements for verifying GHG inventories and validating or verifying GHG projects. ISO 14064 is GHG programme neutral. If a GHG programme is applicable, requirements of that GHG programme are additional to the requirements of ISO 14064. If a requirement of ISO 14064 prohibits an organization or GHG project proponent from complying with a requirement of the GHG programme, the requirement of the GHG programme takes precedence. This part of ISO 14064 is intended for use by project proponents undertaking GHG projects, by validators are verifiers in their assessment of GHG projects, and the managers of voluntary or mandatory GHG programmes. It may be applied to projects in planning or implementation phases. The text of ISO 14064-2:2006 has been prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 207 "Environmental management" of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and has been adopted as EN ISO 14064-2:2012 by Technical Committee CEN/SS S26 "Environmental management", the secretariat of which is held by CCMC. DIN actively contributed to the preparation through NA 172-00-08 AA "Management von Treibhausgasemissionen" ("Greenhouse gas management") of the Environmental Protection Standards Committee (NAGUS).
