Greenhouse gas verification bodies
Field of work
Greenhouse gas emissions have to be determined. For example, companies can trade these emissions, in which case it is important that their records of the emissions are correct. Greenhouse gas verification bodies assess whether what manufacturers state is correct. That requires knowledge of the record keeping processes and technical knowhow about the operating process. For example, if a manufacturer states that it has emitted a certain amount of greenhouse gasses, a verifier has to be able to estimate whether that corresponds with the chemical process and the use of raw materials.
The RvA accredits greenhouse gas verification bodies on the basis of the ISO 14065 standard.
