ClassNK verifies IINO Lines’ GHG assertion

ClassNK has conducted the third-party verification with a ‘reasonable level of assurance’ for IINO Lines’ greenhouse gas (GHG) assertion.

In a statement issued today (11 September), ClassNK said: ‘As actions against climate change has increased the importance as criteria for corporate evaluation, not a few companies are encouraged to disclose their initiatives in line with ISO14064 standards for quantifying, monitoring, reporting and validating or verifying GHG inventories.’

IINO Lines prepared the GHG assertion, quantifying the emissions from its operating fleet and offices from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019, based on ISO14064-1, and ClassNK 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.
