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). 

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—under:

  • DNV’s Verification Protocol for Sustainability Reporting (see CDP Accepted Standards)
  • Through a consistent, transparent, and rigorous process, our experts will identify areas for improvement to make your GHG reporting processes more efficient and effective.
