Restoring and protecting ecosystems was the theme of this year’s World Environment Day. ISO is committed to guiding and moving towards reform and innovation with new standards.
Climate change and accidents are just some of the devastation caused by environmental degradation, and now is the time to step up efforts to reverse this trend. Recognizing that biodiversity is vital to ecosystem regeneration, the newly established ISO / TC 331 Biodiversity Technical Committee is currently working on standards that can help all organizations and governments.
Scope includes standard terms and definitions, methodologies or methodologies for analysis, frameworks for defining strategies and action plans, monitoring tools, and guidelines on biodiversity-specific topics such as ecological engineering and nature-based solutions and technologies.
The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is the liaison body to the ISO Committee on Biodiversity, and key global standards for biodiversity conservation, including the IUCN Red List and Standards, the Global Standard for Biodiversity Identification, and the IUCN. Has been developed.
“We are pleased to be working with ISO to develop international standards for biodiversity,” said Dr. Thomas Brooks , IUCN Senior Scientist. Timing is crucial to supporting the Global Biodiversity Framework after 2020. ISO Secretary General Sergio Mojica added that international cooperation is essential.
“Over-exploitation of land and species has destroyed biodiversity, with consequences such as natural disasters and the unequal distribution of water and food around the world,” he said.
Individual efforts can help; But what will really make a difference is international cooperation. ISO standards can create ways of consensus that organizations and governments can benefit from anywhere.
Ecosystem regeneration requires significant investment, and it is estimated that several trillion dollars would be needed if we were to see zero carbon targets. That is why ISO is also working on a new family of standards to facilitate the green financing industry more transparently and effectively.
ISO 14097 – GHG management and related activities Recently published, it provides a framework including the principles and requirements for assessing and reporting investments and financial activities related to climate change, and helps investors evaluate and report their actions and value. See their true contribution to climate goals.
This standard will be complemented by others in the set, including the ISO 14030 series to assess the environmental performance of green debt instruments, ISO 14100, green asset-green financial project evaluation, and ISO 14093, a climate change-compatible financing mechanism.
ISO has hundreds of standards that contribute to the sustainable development and improvement of the impact on the environment, such as ISO 14001, which relates to the environmental management system. The use of these standards enables organizations to meet the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations, in particular SDG 13 (Climate Change), SDG 14 (Underwater Life) and SDG 15 (Living on Land).
