Measuring Green House Emission - ISO 14064


Climate change is the current crisis the world is experiencing today. Climate change impacts have been manifested in the Asia by extreme weather occurrence such as floods, droughts, forest fires, and an increase in tropical cyclones. 50 % of region’s communities are located in coastal areas thus it is vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. It becomes essential to measure and implement a systematic response to the problem of climate change to reduce the GHG emissions causing the climate change.  The Carbon Footprint (expressed in units of carbon dioxide, CO2) is a term used to describe the amount of GHG emissions caused by a particular activity or entity by an organization thus creating a quantitative method of assessing their contribution in climate change.

This program on carbon footprint is a widely recognized methodology for accounting greenhouse gas emissions which contribute to climate change. The term ‘carbon footprint’ is commonly used but in many cases misunderstood but this course clearly explains the key principles of the methodology based on the principles of ISO 14064. The core value of this course is to emphasize the need for accuracy and consistency with GHG verification as requirements become more rigorous and industry progresses from voluntary reporting towards regulatory compliance.
