POINT380 performs verification & assurance services for companies reporting their 2013 GHG emissions inventories to CDP to meet the requirements for verification & assurance for questions 8.6, 8.7 and 14.2 of CDP’s 2014 Request
We rely on our deep experience in data analytics, econometrics, and carbon tracking and reporting to review our Client’s data collection processes and reporting techniques. We work with our Clients to resolve issues, provide guidance and establish credibility for its GHG emissions inventory.
Each engagement requires Client involvement to approve the verification goals, provide data and participate in interviews, and review and comment on the draft verification report. We maintain an efficient engagement with clearly defined and scheduled client roles and involvement.
Our CDP verifications are conducted in accordance with The Climate Registry’s General Verification Protocol and ISO 14064 series of standards and related GHG program protocols, and requirements as set forth in the CDP 2014 Climate Change Information Request.
We deliver a Final Verification Report that includes:
- A Verification Report that describes the verification process and reports our findings
- A Verification Statement to be used for external reporting, including the CDP Response
- A CDP Response Guide that specifies the filing information for the CDP Response
