GHG and Carbon Verification

The transition to a low-carbon economy requires organizations to identify opportunities for emissions reductions and integrate this information into their capital spending plans.

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions measurement and reporting can help identify ways to improve performance, reduce risk, protect or enhance your organization’s reputation, and secure shareholder and stakeholder trust. Accounting for GHG emissions is a building block for organizational and supply chain sustainability reporting and evaluation.

NSF International provides verification of GHG inventories and validation and verification of GHG projects. We also verify the carbon footprint of product labels, which is an emerging regulatory requirement, especially in European markets.

Quantifying GHG emissions allows your organization to:

  • Identify opportunities for improving energy efficiency and reducing operating costs
  • Meet public and shareholder expectations for responsible GHG management
  • Comply with governmental regulations for CO2 and other GHG reporting
  • Validate and verify carbon offset credits
  • Provide confidence in the reliability of your carbon footprint assertions
  • Enhance public credibility of GHG emission reduction efforts
  • Satisfy regulatory and voluntary GHG reporting program requirements
  • Strengthen your management of GHG opportunities and risks

Accreditations and Approvals

NSF International holds multiple accreditations and approvals for climate services.

NSF International is an ANSI-accredited product certification body - accreditation #0216. ANSI accredits us to:

  • ISO 14065:2013 as a validation and verification body in waste management (including methane destruction) and livestock manure management
  • Verify GHG inventories in these sectors: general, manufacturing, power generation, mining and mineral production, chemical production, oil and gas, waste, agriculture, forestry and other land use (AFOLU)
  • Verify these project scopes: forestry, emissions reductions from industrial processes and ozone depleting substances/nitric acid emission reduction

The California ARB approved NSF International to verify inventories in these sectors: general stationary combustion, transactions, oil and gas systems and process emissions.

The Climate Action Reserve (CAR) approved NSF International to verify projects in forestry, livestock methane management, ozone depleting substance destruction and landfill gas management.
