Time running out to secure CDP verification

08/05/17

With less than two months until the deadline to secure verification of Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) data, the Bureau Veritas Assurance and Sustainability team is reminding organisations of the benefits of independent verification.


Carbon reduction remains high on the agenda for all organisations and as companies are increasingly expected to embed sustainability into their business and organisation culture, disclosing greenhouse gas emissions has become more and more common. And one of the most effective ways for an organisation to demonstrate its commitment to sustainability is to report carbon emissions data to CDP.

Those with responsibility for collecting and reporting data within an organisation will be aware that they can secure more CDP points by gaining independent verification from an accredited verification partner like Bureau Veritas – but the deadline is fast approaching. All reporting organisations must have completed verification by 29 June 2017.

Vishal Goel, Senior Consultant, Sustainability for Bureau Veritas said: “CDP has been in existence since 2000 and has become the gold standard for carbon disclosure methodology and process, providing essential climate change data to the global market, particularly investors. In fact, the CDP’s online database is the largest registry of corporate greenhouse gas emissions and corporate climate change strategies in the world.

“As an accredited CDP verification partner, Bureau Veritas is at the forefront of sustainability reporting and we understand the challenges faced when collecting and reporting accurate data within complex organisations. We work with clients to provide independent, third-party verification of carbon emissions data to help maximise their CDP scoring, improve the effectiveness of carbon reporting systems and maintain the confidence of stakeholders.

“Remember, any data reported to CDP is accessible to investors, government bodies, your employees, the media and consumers. It is therefore important to ensure that any information you disclose is not only transparent but accurate.”

In addition to trusted verification services, Bureau Veritas offers a full range of Assurance and Sustainability services including sustainability report assurance, internal policy compliance audits, bioenergy data and audits. Click here for more details.
