May 08, 2023

Seven experts from SGS Pakistan have been recently certified as greenhouse gases lead auditors for GHG Protocol and ISO 14064-1. This will allow SGS to better satisfy the increasing demand for climate change services.

Combatting the global warming

Climate change is the most important challenge of the 21st century because it requires approaching economic growth in a new way. Companies are under increasing pressure to take measures to combat global warming over and above their basic legal obligations. 

It hence becomes critical for organizations to determine their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

What SGS does for climate change agenda

As the world leader for testing, inspection and certification, SGS is the first choice for companies looking to manage their GHG emissions. 

  • As the Designated Operational Entity (DOE) accredited under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) SGS verifies approximately 40% of Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) worldwide.
  • SGS operates in both the Kyoto compliant and the voluntary markets providing validation and verification services in the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), Joint Implementation (JI), EU ETS, Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX), California Climate Action Registry (CCAR), and The Climate Registry (TCR).
  • Verification is conducted in accordance with the ISO 14064 and GHG Protocol Standards for projects and inventories.
  • Our experience is based on the validation and verification of over 1,000 greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories and projects. 

Strengthening the GHG team in Pakistan

SGS Pakistan has been offering GHG estimation services since 2016. Realizing the rising need in competent and certified GHG auditors, the decision was taken to amplify the SGS Pakistan team of certified auditors.

Seven SGS experts have been recently certified as Greenhouse Gases Lead Auditors as per GHG Protocol & ISO 14064-1.

About the ISO 14064-1:2018

ISO 14064-1:2018 specifies principles and requirements at the organization level for the quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals.

It includes requirements for the design, development, management, reporting and verification of an organization's GHG inventory.

We see an increasing demand for GHG expertise in Pakistan. The ISO 14064-1 certification enables us to better meet our customers’ needs.
