As the movement of goods around the globe increases to sustain our modern economy, so do the logistics costs and environmental impacts. Happily, large-scale harmonization is now underway to benchmark fuel consumption and reduce the emissions by freight shippers and carriers in the hope of shrinking the sector’s growing carbon footprint.
Climate change is the major environmental challenge of our time. Global action is needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as adapt to the changes that cannot be avoided. ISO International Standards can help tackle climate change in a number of ways.
For example, we have standards that:
- help organizations to quantify their greenhouse gas emissions and communicate on them, for example ISO 14064 and ISO 14065,
- promote good practice in environmental and energy management, such as ISO 14001 and ISO 50001, and
- open up world markets for energy efficient and renewable energy technologies.
On this page you will find topical information, news articles and other resources about ISO standards and climate change.
