ISO to Develop International Standard on Net Zero

by Madaline Dunn

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has announced that it has begun work on its first international standard on net zero.

According to the organisation, it is being designed to provide a global solution to guide organisations as they pursue their net zero transition.

It aims to provide clarity on the net zero transition, robust requirements, and enable independently verified and comprehensive climate action.

The international standard on net zero is geared up to launch next year at COP30 in November 2025 as an evolution of the ISO Net Zero Guidelines, launched at COP27.

The British Standards Institution (BSI), the UK National Standards Body, is convening the process in collaboration with ICONTEC, Colombia’s National Standards Body.

Thousands of experts are expected to collaborate through national standards bodies across more than 170 countries, with a public consultation expected to open later in 2025.

Noelia Garcia Nebra, Head of Sustainability at ISO, commented: “ISO takes our role in supporting a net zero transition seriously. As part of our Climate Commitment, we look forward to delivering an international standard the market has been asking for, and importantly, suitable for organizations of all sizes, sectors and geographies.”
