FAQs

Carbon footprint verification (CFV) involves collecting data on emissions from your organization's activities, products and services, and then independently verifying its accuracy. This process not only provides credibility to your carbon footprint claims but also helps you understand how to reduce and offset emissions effectively.

CFV is essential to providing credibility and reassuring stakeholders that your carbon footprint is accurate, absolute and compliant with major GHG reporting standards.

Measuring your carbon footprint enables you to:

  • Manage carbon risks and identify areas for improvement
  • Prepare for future GHG legislation
  • Reduce costs and increase efficiency through lower energy consumption
  • Enhance credibility and environmental responsibility
  • Encourage employee involvement in reduction efforts

CFV standards enable you to:

  • Confirm compliance and demonstrate transparency
  • Show continuous improvement in GHG management
  • Create a competitive edge and support tender requirements
  • Save costs by identifying energy reduction opportunities
  • Manage reputational risks with reliable data
  • Enhance reputation and increase stakeholder confidence

The ISO 14064 series is GHG program neutral. If a GHG program applies, that program’s requirements are additional to those of the ISO 14064 series.

As per ISO 14064-3, our verification steps are:

  1. Verification planning: we perform a document review, strategic analysis and risk assessment, and develop an evidence-gathering and verification plan.
  2. Execute verification activities: we conduct on-site verification and assess changes to the GHG statement.
  3. Complete verification activities: we evaluate the GHG statement, conclude and draft an opinion, and prepare a verification report.
  4. Independent review.
  5. Issue the opinion.
