The International Organization for Standardization – ISO for short – is the international association and develops international standards in almost all areas. ISO is an association under Swiss law

On the basis of the GHG approach, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) developed its standards for balancing greenhouse gases in companies, projects and products in 2006. These are constantly being developed further and are an internationally recognized standard for the voluntary accounting of greenhouse gases (CO2) at various levels.

Accounting according to these standards offers the possibility of auditing and certification by an independent accredited certifier for internationally recognized use.
