Carbon offset projects are developed to provide real reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by reducing, absorbing or avoiding the release of carbon dioxide. SCS Global Services works closely with project developers and landowners to provide third-party verification of their projects, a crucial step to secure the sale or trade of carbon credits in global carbon markets such as the California Cap-and-Trade Program.

  • Assure funders and buyers that your projects are making real climate mitigation impacts
  • Work with knowledgeable staff with experience verifying a wide range of offset project types
  • Provide independent confirmation of your emissions reduction claim
  • Receive support throughout the verification process and beyond
SCS has verified over 250 million tonnes of Co2e emissions reductions!

Carbon Offset Services

  • Pre-assessment or gap analysis - We can conduct a gap analysis prior to initiating the project. A gap analysis can identify technical issues prior to final verification.
  • Project design validation - Validate the design of your offset project with SCS to determine your eligibility for verification. Please contact our GHG verification staff at any point in the development stages of your project.
  • Verification of project-based emissions reductions - We verify GHG emission reductions associated with the collection and destruction of greenhouse gases.

Complementary SCS Services

In addition, SCS provides carbon footprint measurement and verification for any entity or corporation. SCS offers measurement and verification of GHG inventories under the World Resources Institute and the Carbon Disclosure Project. SCS is also ANSI-accredited to offer GHG inventory verification under The Climate Registry.
