Carbon mitigation and verification come full circle with CSA partnership
by CanadianManufacturing.com Staff
Global standards development, testing and certification organization CSA Group has teamed with environmental services firm Zerofootprint Carbon Inc. to streamline carbon neutrality verification
TORONTO—Businesses and organizations seeking solutions for demonstrating internationally recognized, third-party verification of carbon neutrality now need to look no further than Toronto.
CSA Group, a leading global standards development, testing and certification organization, and Zerofootprint Carbon Inc., a provider of environmental services and solutions, have teamed up to streamline services for Zerofootprint Carbon Inc. clients.
After calculating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, verifying them via an independent third party, and purchasing Zerofootprint Carbon Inc. offsets, an organization will now be eligible to apply for the CSA-registered CarbonNeutral label.
CSA’s Carbon Neutral program recognizes carbon neutral claims for buildings, organizations and tenants with an independent and transparent process based on the ISO 14064 series of GHG standards.
Those that meet the requirements of the program are entitled to use and display the CSA Registered Carbon Neutral™ label to communicate to customers and stakeholders their achievement of net zero GHG emissions.
Zerofootprint Carbon Inc. will provide its established expertise in measuring and calculating a client’s carbon footprint, while CSA Group will register accredited third-party verification that the net carbon neutrality abides by recognized international standards.
The CSA Group and Zerofootprint Carbon alliance will be available to clients globally and will be of particular interest to companies that have already quantified and reported on their greenhouse gas emissions through the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) and other Global Reporting Initiative organizations.
