Setting a Standard for GHG-Neutrality

How to improve the new ISO on carbon neutral organizations and products


In late 2023, the International Standard Organization (ISO) published a new standard on carbon neutrality: ISO 14068-1. It provides terminology, principles and requirements for GHG-neutral organizations and products, agreed by international experts. However, it contains significant shortcomings as it allows GHG-neutrality claims to be made using  high fossil based GHG emissions and environment-damaging GHG removal methods . In a factsheet, the German Environment Agency (⁠UBA⁠) describes the new carbon neutrality standard and concludes: Credible GHG-neutrality claims must go beyond the standard. Above all, companies must consequently reduce their GHG emissions.
