ClassNK has conducted the third-party verification with a reasonable level of assurance for a greenhouse gas (GHG) emission assertion of IINO KAIUN KAISHA (IINO LINES) and group companies, and issued a verification statement.
To meet climate change targets, companies are increasingly encouraged to disclose their initiatives in line with ISO14064 standards for quantifying, monitoring, reporting and validating or verifying GHG inventories.
IINO LINES has prepared the GHG assertion, from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019, quantifying the emissions from its operating fleet and offices 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 that 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.
