Net Zero IWA 42 and Carbon Neutrality Standards ISO 14068

by Chad Kymal published on June 21, 2024

This webinar is an informative and exciting discussion on Net Zero Carbon and Carbon Neutrality. Chad Kymal, CTO of Omnex, has been at the forefront of this movement and believes now is the time for organizations to ensure their programs follow standards set by ISO. He was one of the international experts who contributed to the Net Zero Carbon Guidelines released by ISO, which were launched at COP27 in 2022. The guidelines provide a common reference for collective efforts, offering a global basis for harmonizing, understanding, and planning for net zero.

Mr. Chad Kymal is also a U.S. expert in ISO 14068, "Climate change management — Transition to net zero - Part 1: Carbon neutrality," a standard released last year. This standard provides guidelines for organizations seeking to make claims for Net Zero and/or Carbon Neutrality. It is used by verification and validation bodies to ensure that a neutrality claim is valid.

Watch this webinar recording to learn from Chad Kymal about the latest standards and best practices for achieving Net Zero Carbon and Carbon Neutrality, and how your organization can align with these critical guidelines.
