Standards Adoption Workshop -  Greenhouse Gas Quantification &  Product Life Cycle Assessment


Registration is closed.



29th January, Friday
2:00pm to 4:30pm

Singapore Manufacturing Federation Room E1.5 and E1.6

SYNOPSIS

At the recent COP21 Climate Change meeting in Paris, 195 countries pledged to lower their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in an effort to limit the rise in global average temperature to 2 degrees Celsius — thus avoiding the most devastating consequences of climate change. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong described the agreement as "historic", adding that Singaporeans have a role in protecting the environment. Singapore has set a target of reducing GHG emissions by 36% by 2030 (based on 2005 levels).

Singapore businesses need to respond to environmental changes to achieve sustainable growth. Standards will play an increasingly important role in moving businesses to a more climate safe development path. Standards can provide clear guidelines, help structure processes and set quality norms for the rapidly developing field of GHG management. In doing so they help facilitate new green technology markets and more energy-efficient and profitable business practices.

This workshop aims to provide updates on the latest revision of ISO 14064 and how organisations could manage and report their GHG’s emissions.  Participants could also learn how to determine the environment impact of its product and services using the ISO 14040/44 Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology.
