Applus+ Laboratories leverages diverse services to assist in project carbon emission verification for a greener home


    With the proposal of the global goal of peaking carbon emissions and achieving carbon neutrality, countries have increased their efforts in verifying carbon emissions from various projects, actively establishing a standard measurement system for peaking carbon emissions and carbon markets. More and more enterprises are also beginning to invest resources to evaluate how to effectively manage and control carbon emissions.

    As one of the leading testing and certification providers, our Applus+ Laboratories service offer includes four types of carbon emission verification services to assist enterprises in verifying emissions, establishing carbon credits, and realizing more corporate value in the carbon market.

    I. Certified Carbon Reduction for the United Nations Clean Development Mechanism Project

    The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is a method of investing in emission reduction projects in developing countries. The institutions with the authority to issue tradable certified carbon emission reductions (CERs) are responsible for the approval and verification of such projects. Developed countries can use CER credits to offset greenhouse gas emissions.

    We are recognized by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and have rich experience in certification in industries such as energy and wastewater treatment. Our offices located around the world can provide high-quality, efficient, and cost-effective services for project carbon emission verification.

    II. Carbon emission verification and approval of projects under the voluntary carbon reduction mechanism of the gold standard

    The GS Gold Standard is one of the widely established and recognized voluntary emission reduction trading mechanisms internationally. The GS project must be implemented by the technical requirements determined by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and must be approved by a designated operating entity recognized by UNFCCC before voluntary carbon reduction (VER) can be generated.

    Since 2013, our Applus+ Laboratories team has been conducting approval and verification work for GS projects. Verifying the GS project can ensure the transparency and reliability of the evaluation and registration process for carbon emissions verification of the project. It can help the project clarify its commitment to greenhouse gas emissions reduction and assist in achieving greater economic value in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

    III. Verified Carbon Unit (VCU) issued under Verified Carbon Standard

    Carbon credits must be certified to confirm their authenticity before they can be sold to businesses or individuals through the carbon market. The VCS mechanism provides a series of strict certification requirements and standards for the carbon credits generated by voluntary carbon reduction and/or removal projects.

    When it comes to required project approval and verification, project developers must seek assistance from external, impartial, and VCS-approved third-party certification bodies to ensure that project carbon emissions verification complies with all VCS rules and requirements. Approved by VCS, we can validate and verify projects by this standard.

    IV. Carbon footprint verification

    Thanks to carbon footprint verification, companies can independently assess the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by a company or organization during a specific period. Based on carbon footprint verification, the company can assess the greenhouse gas emissions during the implementation of its activities and demonstrate its commitment to mitigating the impacts of climate change.

    The carbon footprint of project carbon emission verification is only valid if conducted by an independent third-party organization such as us at Applus+ Laboratories. Thanks to our wide international experience providing product carbon footprint verification services, our certification and testing experts are fit to work for companies of all types and sizes, involving the entire lifecycle of products.

    Thanks to carbon emission information, businesses can obtain data on the environmental impact of their purchased products, clarify the process of carbon neutrality, and promote the development of green and sustainable industries and society.
