ISO 14064 validation and verification

Independent validation and verification of greenhouse gas inventories and emission reduction and/or icreased removal projects

ISO 14064 validation and verification, which is part of a series of initiatives undertaken in the field of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, allows companies to operate, voluntarily and concretely, in the area of greenhouse gas reduction.
The main benefits of this service are:

GHG inventory

The ISO 14064-1 standard determines the requirements for organisations and businesses that voluntarily quantify and report the emissions associated with their activities. With respect to the design, development and reporting of GHG inventories, the standard determines its boundaries, identifies specific actions or activities aimed at improving their management, and establishes the criteria for their removal.

GHG projects

The independent validation and verification of voluntary emission reduction and/or increased removal project, in compliance with the principles and requirements of the ISO 14064-2 standard, focuses on the quantification, monitoring and reporting of projects relating to emissions GHG and/or their removal.

Validation and/or verification procedure


RINA has many years of experience in GHG validation and verification activities as a body firstly recognised by the Italian Ministry and since 2013 accredited for the Emission Trading System (ETS) scheme and as a Designated Operational Entity (DOE) accredited by UNFCCC for the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) scheme.
