ISO 14067 Carbon Footprint becomes full ISO Standard


The revised ISO standard 14067 carbon footprint of a product has successfully passed the ballot to become a full ISO standard.

The standard has been updated to focus only on quantification (communication of footprints is now covered by the new standard ISO 14026). Major differences include:

  • greater clarity on the treatment of biogenic carbon, land use change and land management;

  • addition of the requirement to include and justify the reference land use;

  • modifications to the treatment green electricity;

  • a new informative Annex providing guidance on agriculture and forestry;

  • revision of definitions to harmonise across the 14060 family.

The standard can be accessed here.
