ISO/TS 14033:2012 addresses issues related to defining, collecting, processing, interpreting and presenting quantitative environmental information. It provides guidelines on how to establish accuracy, verifiability and reliability for the intended use.

You’ll find information on how to acquire quantitative environmental information and data and implement methodology. The standard also covers the general principles, policy, strategy and activities necessary to obtain quantitative environmental information for internal and/or external purposes.
This Technical Specification could be used, for example, to support the establishment of inventory routines and make decisions related to environmental policies and strategies which are aimed at comparing quantitative environmental information.
The information is related to organizations, activities, facilities, technologies or products.
