Build Trust in your Climate Change Data

Bureau Veritas offers a wide range of services from regulatory to voluntary schemes to build credibility in your climate data:

  • validation
  • verification/ certification


Since the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, the United Nations has made a major effort to develop incentives for reducing greenhouse gas emissions which are at the root of global warming.


In addition to this regulatory system, voluntary initiatives were set up by various countries.


These local and sector-specific schemes will form the front-line of the fight against climate change within the coming years.


Bureau Veritas helps companies reduce the effects of their greenhouse gas emissions on climate change.
