Climate Change Services

Validation and verification services to support greenhouse gas reduction

Climate Change Challenges

Climate change is an issue that concerns every country on the planet. 

The Kyoto Protocol of 1997 formalized an international commitment to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In an effort to address climate change in a practical way, the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) was developed by the United Nations Framework on Climate Change (UNFCCC)

Besides that, and in order to achieve its own GHG emissions reductions targets, the European Union established the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) and verification.
