The Emissions Verification Service conducts a thorough audit of the greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory or project, following the ISO14064:3 standard. This audit aims to provide a reasonable or limited level of assurance that the inventory complies with ISO14064:1.
Carbon Action can provide verification and validation services for any circumstance. However, as Carbon Action itself specialises in GHG Quantification, it chooses to avoid the conflict of interest of providing GHG Verification service for statutory schemes. For such schemes we use external partners, properly accredited in the country of operation. The service offering is designed to be a one stop shop for any/all Verification and Validation needs.
The key steps involved in the verification process are as follows:
· Verification Planning and Comprehensive Review
· On-site Inspection
· Examination of Records
· Reporting and Finalisation
Key Benefits of GHG inventory/carbon reduction project Verification:
