How does it work?

  1. Reporter Preparation

    Companies calculate their Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions following ISO 14083 standards, gather supporting documents and evidence to verify their calculations, and select a qualified Validation and Verification Body (VVB) from SFC’s accredited list (currently, only Normec Verifavia is accredited).

  2. Rigorous Independent Verification

    The chosen VVB meticulously reviews the company’s emissions data and related documentation, assesses compliance with ISO 14083 standards and relevant performance criteria, and conducts detailed interviews and audits to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the data.

  3. Comprehensive Report and Recognition

    The scheme maintains a database of trusted Validation and Verification Bodies (VVBs) for reporters to choose from. The VVB issues a verification report summarizing their findings and conclusions. Companies that meet all criteria receive a compliance certificate from SFC, which significantly enhances their reputation and credibility among stakeholders.
