Learning Objectives

GHG professionals will learn that verification:

  • Is the systematic, independent and documented process for the evaluation of a GHG assertion against agreed verification criteria
  • Provides an independent assessment of the data associated with a GHG inventory or project
  • Offers opinion on the accuracy of estimates or measurements, giving confidence to others interested in the results.

Students will work toward becoming more competent verifiers by learning to:

  • Assess their own competencies to conduct verifications
  • Establish verification scope, objectives, criteria and materiality threshold
  • Assess the risks involved in a verification
  • Develop a verification plan, including a sampling plan
  • Assess GHG information systems, documentation, data and emission reduction estimates
  • Evaluate the GHG assertion against the agreed-upon verification criteria
  • Issue the verification statement, keep records and address additional information discovered post-verification

Course Overview

The projected environmental impacts of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are driving many organizations to reduce their GHG emissions, using independent, third-party verifiers to measure and verify their GHG emissions as part of an overall strategy that could lead to becoming net carbon neutral.

This 2-day course will provide detailed training on the approach to using the ISO 14064-3 standard, with specific examples of how verification would be applied to a GHG inventory prepared according to the ISO 14064-1 standard, or a project that conforms with the ISO 14064-2 standard. An overview of GHG Inventory and Project accounting (following ISO 14064-1, ISO 14064-2, respectively) is also provided.

The core value of this course is to emphasize the need for accuracy and consistency with GHG verification as requirements become more rigorous and industry progresses from voluntary reporting towards regulatory compliance.

The course includes interactive team-based exercises, a detailed case study (to reinforce key concepts throughout the course) and quizzes. The course can be adapted to address verification within the context of a given GHG program.
