Benefits of becoming certified
Verification against ISO 14064-1 and ISO 14064-2 highlights the veracity of your systems and processes to prove your GHG inventory, assertions and reports conform to the ISO 14064 standard; and are free from errors, omissions or misstatements.
Validation against ISO 14064-2, establishes the integrity of your project baseline, design plan and supporting assumptions to ensure you realize your projected GHG reductions.
Verification against ISO 14064-1 provides the necessary assurance of your carbon footprint declarations. Validation of GHG projects to ISO 14064-2 provides confidence that the GHG project, if implemented as planned, will help achieve the projected emission reductions. Verification of your GHG projects gives assurance to your stakeholders of the quantum of emission reductions achieved in a specified period.
Verification & Assessment
ISO 14064 has two phases. Validation involves a review of your project design data and documentation, with a validation opinion statement confirming you can deliver adequate GHG removals or emission reductions against the agreed criteria.
Verification ensures your reported climate change data and information is true, fair and reliable as supported by a rigorous management system.
An assurance statement is provided following completion of validation or verification to ISO 14064. The statement confirms the terms of engagement, provides a brief approach of the engagement, the level of assurance and materiality applied and finally provides an opinion. The assurance statement provides credibility to your GHG assertions and claims that they are free of errors, omissions and misstatements. Our assurance statement is recognised externally including recognition by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).
