SCS provides independent third-party verification services for the above listed programs to assure that the entity’s inventory is accurate, complete, and meets the verification criteria. SCS conducts its verification based upon a risk-based assessment of inventory data and management systems, and conducts its verification through a targeted sampling of client data and procedures. Results are summarized in a verification report and verification statement.
In addition SCS provides the following related services:
- Scope 3 Inventory Preparation – Scope 3 emissions are important to consider, often accounting for as much as half of your GHG total inventory. Scope 3 inventory is also required when setting Science Based Targets and reporting Scope 3 can enhance your CDP score.
- Organizational and Product Footprints – If you have never calculated and reported your GHG emissions, SCS can help you get started measuring, calculating, and declaring your organization's direct and indirect GHG emissions.
- GHG Calculators – SCS can create a custom GHG tool for organizations to compile their own GHG inventories year after year.
Note, we cannot measure and verify for the same organization as this is a conflict of interest.
