The Indonesian government has taken action on the Paris Agreement which undertakes to anticipate global climate change by changing Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) to Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC).
Based on Regulation Number 2 Year 2014 about Standardization and Conformity Assessment, National Standardization Body (BSN) has been mandated to build, develop, and coordinate standardization activities in Indonesia. BSN has adopted 810 ISO standards to be Indonesian National Standardization (SNI), and some parts identical adoption. Some adopted standard is developed by ISO/TC 207/SC 7, such as ISO 14064-1 Greenhouse gases.
Part 1: Specification with guidance at the organization level for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and removals; ISO 14064-2 Greenhouse gases.
Part 2: Specification with guidance at the project level for quantification, monitoring and reporting of greenhouse gas emission reductions or removal enhancements; and ISO 14064-3 Greenhouse gases.
Part 3: Specification with guidance for the validation and verification of greenhouse gas assertions.
Indonesia became host of Working Group Meeting of ISO/TC 207/SC 7, “Greenhouse Gas Management and Related Activities”. Besides that, Indonesia has a strategic position as Convener and Secretary of ISO/TC 207/SC 7/WG 7. This group develops ISO 14080 titled Guidance with Framework and Principle for Methodologies on Climate Actions. It is proposed because Indonesian government commits to decrease 29% greenhouse gas emission in 2030 independently, and would decrease 41% if supported internationally.
Ultimately, the Indonesian government needs local regulators to support decreasing and managing greenhouse gas emission nationally. TÜV Rheinland Indonesia will play an important role in contributing and supporting the government in this goal.
