Nowadays, increased awareness of Global Warming has led to the need for corporations to calculate and report greenhouse gas emissions. In many countries there are carbon emission limits and mandatory reduction targets.
Altensis provides a wide range of services covering carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions measuring, monitoring and reporting subjects within the framework of sustainability principles to national and international companies, which aim to integrate carbon accounting and management policies and strategies into their business practices.
Carbon Management: According to Kyoto Protocol and the regulation on “Monitoring Green House Gases” published in 2012 in the official newspaper with the number 28274, some enterprises are required to monitor greenhouse gas emissions. Especially, enterprises providing service in international level are required to report their greenhouse gases according to the international norms and standards.
ISO 14064 series can be defined as the guidance standard for companies in preparation of inventories, reports, and improvements regarding greenhouse gases. The ISO 14064 series can be listed as following:
ISO 14064-1: Specification with guidance at the organization level for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and removals
ISO 14064-2: Part 2: Specification with guidance at the project level for quantification, monitoring and reporting of greenhouse gas emission reductions or removal enhancements
ISO 14064-3: Part 3: Specification with guidance for the validation and verification of greenhouse gas assertions
With the help of its experts Altensis provides carbon emission calculation, reporting, and off – setting services according to the international standard ISO 14064 and the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG).
