Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Verification & Validation

Third-party accreditation to support carbon action

Validating and verifying greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions may be a requirement by regulatory bodies across North America. At the same time, validation/verification may also be an important voluntary component in a robust corporate environmental, social, and governance program.

Stantec provides third-party GHG validation and verification services accredited by ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB) under the following scopes: verification of organizational assertions; validation of GHG emissions reductions and removals at the project level; and verification of GHG emissions reductions and removals at the project level.

Our team of practitioners can support you with verifying your corporate carbon emissions. 

The validation and verification process

Our validation and verification services follow the standards set out by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14064-3:2006, ISO 14065:2013, and ISO 14066:2011. As part of these services, we have a defined approach to the verification/validation process.

Reporting programs

With our knowledge and experience across North America—and with provincial and federal reporting programs in Canada—we can help you meet your reporting objectives. This includes verifications on corporate and offset project inventories that follow ISO 14064-1 and ISO 14064-2, respectively.

Impartiality, complaints, and appeals

In delivering validation and verification services, Stantec remains independent of our clients to ensure impartiality in our findings. We have a defined complaints and appeals process as well as a policy on the use of our validation/verification statements. Learn More
