CDP and other corporate GHG emissions inventory verification services
Growing expectations from customers around the management and reporting of corporate responsibility issues such as greenhouse gas emissions can create barriers to accessing your marketplace.
You should accurately and effectively communicate your performance along with the systems and controls you have in place for managing GHG data.
Corporate GHG Emissions Inventory Verification is recommended by many standard setters, such as CDP and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), and in some instances, is required by regional regulatory bodies such as the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and regional regulations, such as in British Columbia and Ontario.
Third-party verification can provide stakeholders with confidence that publicly disclosed information is complete, balanced, and accurate, and position your organization to meet regulatory requirements. It can also demonstrate corporate leadership and significantly improve your score in public sustainability assessments such as CDP’s Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) and the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI).
We can provide third-party verification of your corporate GHG inventory— in conjunction with your sustainability report assurance or as a standalone verification process — DNV GL’s Verification Protocol for Sustainability Reporting (see CDP Accepted Standards).
DNV GL is accredited by ANSI in accordance with ISO 14065 and is qualified to conduct verifications for the British Columbia and Ontario GHG regulatory requirements. DNV GL is currently accredited for Verification Of Assertions Related To GHG Emissions And Removals At The Organizational Level for the General, Manufacturing and Power Generation Sector.
Through a consistent, transparent, and rigorous process, our experts will identify areas for improvement to make your GHG reporting processes more efficient and effective.
