Japanese classification society ClassNK on Friday (11 September) said it has conducted the third-party verification with a reasonable level of assurance for a GHG assertion of Japanese shipping company, IINO KAIUN KAISHA LTD.
As actions against climate change have increased as an importance for corporate evaluation, companies are encouraged to disclose their initiatives in line with ISO14064 standards for quantifying, monitoring, reporting and validating or verifying GHG inventories, it said.
IINO Lines has conducted GHG assertions, from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019, quantifying emissions from its operating fleet and offices based on ISO14064-1 guidelines, and ClassNK added it has conducted the verification according to ISO 14064-3.
ISO 14064-3 provides two levels of assurance, and the “reasonable assurance” applied in the verification means the society expresses the GHG assertion is materially correct and is a fair representation of the GHG data and information followed by detailed and comprehensive assessment, it explained.
ClassNK noted it will continue utilising its expertise rooted in the maritime industry and support the reduction of GHG emission through its independent and reliable third-party verification service.
