ISO set to release ISO 14080 towards Achieving the Climate Agenda

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has commenced the drafting of a new ISO, 14080. The proposed standard is aimed at helping governments and businesses achieve emissions reduction in line with the Paris Agreement, through the use of enhanced methodologies.

Speaking on the development, the Vice Chair of the ISO task force on climate change co-ordination, and Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) policy lead, Nick Blyth, assures that the standard is a development towards curbing climate change.

Already, a draft of the proposed standard features principles for designing a framework and guideline to establish methodologies that take into account prevailing climate change policies as well as the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement objectives. It further provides examples of methodology profiles for communicating with stakeholders and ensuring disclosure.

The full document will be released in 2018.
