Carbon Disclosure Project - Verification Services

Carbon verification services to benefit climate change

What is Carbon Disclosure Project?

The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), in existence since 2000, has become the gold standard for carbon disclosure methodology and process for corporations. It provides essential climate change data to the global market and the CDP’s online database is the largest registry of corporate Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and corporate climate change strategies in the world.

Many organisations in all major economies now measure and disclose their greenhouse gas emissions and climate change strategies through CDP in order to set reduction targets and make performance improvements.

Independent verification is one of CDP’s key strategic aims and should become an integral part of global corporate carbon reporting in order for users to place the requisite level of trust in data which are essential for investment and other decision making purposes.

Our Approach to Carbon Disclosure Project

• To provide an opinion on all or part of the information disclosed to CDP, we use our sector wide carbon related audit experience to check relevant data and qualitative claims against established and suitable criteria.

• The outcome is an independent statement citing the scope, approach and professional audit opinion and will provide both the organization and the intended users with over whether such information that such information is reliable, accurate and can be trusted.

• Additionally, this is supported by a detailed analysis to the reporting organization that elaborates on our findings to assist with internal changes for the overall effectiveness of data management and reporting, thereby enhancing carbon disclosure for the future.
