Verification of greenhouse gas emission declarations

NF EN ISO 14065

The European Union (EU) is the world's third-largest emitter of CO2, a greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming. To measure, inspect and reduce the emissions from its industry and its electricity producers, the EU put in place in 2005 a carbon market, then extended this to all greenhouse gases (GHG).

Considering what is at stake, the EU draws on accreditation to ensure that the inspections of greenhouse gas emission declarations are conducted by bodies that are competent and impartial, and hence trustworthy.

Accreditation is therefore contributing to attaining the goal of 20% fewer emissions in 2020 compared to 1990.
