Consulting and Implementation of UNE EN ISO 14064-1: 2012 to obtain the AENOR CO2 Certificate
The CTCR advises and help the companies in the process of implementation and external audit of the AENOR’s UNE EN ISO 14064-1:2012 in order that the company obtain the verified CO2 Certificate.
The Carbon Footprint is defined as the total amount of GHGs caused directly or indirectly by an organization, product or service. It is, therefore, an inventory of GHGs, which is measured in tonnes of CO2 equivalent and takes into account the 6 types of greenhouse gases contemplated in the Kyoto Protocol (CO2, CH4, N2O, PFC, HFC and SF6).
The standards for the production of GHG inventories conforming to ISO 14064-1 are, on the one hand, to know our organization in depth, so as to identify the environmental and economic improvement points (usually a reduction of energy consumption and raw materials is associated with economic saving); on the other hand, transparency to communicate to customers the impact on climate change of our organization, to provide them with the necessary information for the criteria of green purchase and contracting and to demonstrate the environmental commitment of the organization.
The implementation and verification of the ISO 14064-1 offers different benefits to the organisations, both internal and external:
• • Correct implementation ensures consistency, transparency and credibility in GHG quantification, allowing organizations to identify and manage their environmental responsibilities related to GHGs. In addition, as it is an internationally recognized management system, it facilitates its overall interpretation.
• • It also facilitates the development and implementation of GHG management strategies. This allows organizations to know their current situation and identify opportunities for improvement in which gas emissions are concerned.
• • At the external level, verification helps investors and customers make decisions, since verified organizations are in an environmental commitment.
