Value Chain Impact Verification
As part of a credible reduction strategy, companies are increasingly focusing on ‘interventions’ - projects, programmes, and business decisions that drive sustainability and reduce emissions in key areas of their value chain. And in a world where expectations around reporting Value Chain emissions are increasing, no company can risk going public with figures that might not stand up to scrutiny.
Tackling Corporates most pressing decarbonization needs
Getting clarity on the real change delivered on the ground is paramount and businesses can’t suddenly be expected to be climate data experts – this is the job of verifiers. We have the expertise and tools to confirm if value chain interventions are producing outputs that can be trusted.
The result of our work is an independent and clear feedback on the credibility of GHG outcomes, and on how companies can use the result of their interventions in the context of their sustainability and Scope 3 reporting.
Onboarding includes capacity building and discovery phases to help corporates get started on their Scope 3 journey.
