ISO 14008 - Monetary valuation of environmental impacts from emissions and use of natural resources
Following a vote in September 2015, a new ISO standard is being developed on Monetary valuation of environmental impacts from emissions and natural resources – Principles, requirements and guidelines. This will provide clarity on common terms, principles and a framework for valuation that can be used in both policy and business applications. SIS , Swedish Standards Institute are convening the Working Group for ISO14008 (WG7 - ISO 14008) and over 30 countries are participating. Dr. Dorothy Maxwell is participating as a UK expert for the British Standards Institute delegation. The standard development process is now underway with a draft planned for end 2016 and the final standard in 2018.
Interested parties are welcome to join the work of developing the standard and to keep a watching brief.
