An independent assessment of greenhouse gases emitted during a specific period by a company or organization.
More and more companies are investing their efforts in assessing and reducing their carbon footprint to improve their reputation and to generate mid and long-term savings.
Thanks to carbon footprint verification companies can assess the amount of greenhouse gas emissions during the execution of their activities and demonstrate their commitment to mitigating climate change effects. Verified emissions can be either direct, for example generated by production operations or indirect, such as those caused by transporting goods or traveling. It is up to the organization to define both the verification frequency and the elements that must be measured.
Verifications can only be valid if they’re carried out by an independent entity such as Applus+ Laboratories, accredited to perform a variety of carbon footprint verification services, including:
This type of service is aimed at all type and size companies hoping to obtain a Greenhouse Gas Emissions Report verification from a third party, in order to register their carbon footprint levels on national or regional reports. Carbon footprint verification is especially valuable for organizations hoping to gain access to grants and contracts from the public administration, since it could be a requisite.
Intended for all type and size companies whose operations are involved in the entire lifecycle of a product (including raw material sourcing; design; production; transport and delivery; use and handling during the end of its lifecycle) and that to provide their customers with verified information about the environmental impact of their purchases, in terms of carbon emissions.
Aligned with corporate carbon footprint verification, product carbon footprint verification sets a starting point for organizations moving towards carbon neutrality as a whole.
