ClassNK has audited Iino Lines of Japan and has found its greenhouse gas (GHG) initiatives to be in line with ISO standards
Classification society ClassNK has conducted the third-party verification, with a ’reasonable level of assurance’ for a GHG assertion of Iino Kaiun Kaisha and group companies and issued a verification statement.
As actions against climate change are increasingly important for corporate evaluation, companies are 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(*1), and ClassNK has conducted the verification according to ISO 14064-3(*2).
ISO 14064-3 provides two levels of assurance, and the reasonable assurance applied in the verification means 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.

(*2) Specification with guidance for the validation and verification of greenhouse gas assertions.
