Businesses worldwide are under increasing pressure to reduce their carbon footprint. Companies that use transparent, trusted, and accredited methods for reducing their greenhouse gas emissions stand to gain an advantage while reducing their risks. Companies need to understand the roles of governments, accreditation and verification bodies, and registries in this process to ensure that emissions reduction projects deliver real results. Understanding the impact of international standards such as ISO 14064 is also important in terms of how your organization can gain a competitive edge in the market place.  Find out how you can help your company improve its performance and competitiveness by using accredited verification of projects to ISO 14064 standards.
