The latest ISOfocus issue lays out the range of standards for monitoring climate change, quantifying greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and promoting good practice in environmental management and design. These are just some of the ways in which ISO International Standards help governments and organizations address climate change.

But this can’t happen without collaboration. As Thomas Idermark, CEO of the Swedish Standards Institute (SIS), writes in his introductory remark: “The climate has no borders, and neither has ISO. This is what makes it so important that the work carried out in different committees to identify best practice does not simply continue but also escalates.”

ISO has produced over 600 environment-related standards, including those that help open world markets for clean energy and energy-efficient technologies and support climate change adaptation and mitigation. They also contribute directly to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 13 on climate action.

To help keep you current on developments, the latest ISOfocus brings together compelling views of the benefits of ISO standards on climate change from all points of the globe. Articles span a wide range of topics, including quantifying GHG emissions, climate change mitigation and adaptation frameworks, and financing climate change activities.
