Market opportunities through reduction of CO2 emissions
In order to meet the need for increased climate protection and the demands of consumers, service providers are also called upon to reduce their CO2 emissions. With verification by TÜV NORD CERT, providers of professional and personal services from all sectors can orientate their services towards sustainability, actively combat global warming and set their products apart from the competition.
Two verifications to choose from
The verification "Service Carbon Footprint" - a check of the CO2 footprint - confirms the correct determination of the greenhouse gas emissions that occur with the respective service, for example through transport or energy consumption. Companies that also want to make their services climate-neutral can have their certificates from recognised climate protection projects purchased and shut down as compensation for CO2 emissions confirmed as part of an extended verification process. The TÜV NORD "climate-neutral service" test mark is awarded for this purpose.
Advantages through comprehensive monitoring
In addition to its contribution to environmental protection and an additional argument when addressing end customers, the audit also has economic advantages: The comprehensive monitoring of emission sources by neutral experts identifies potential savings and thus offers the opportunity to reduce costs. TÜV NORD CERT has extensive knowledge and national and international references in the field of climate protection. We are accredited by the German Accreditation Body (DAkkS) in accordance with ISO 14065 for verifying greenhouse gas balances (carbon footprints) in accordance with ISO 14064-3 and for verification under the European Emissions Trading Scheme (EU-ETS). Furthermore, we are accredited by the United Nations Framework Convetion on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to validate and verify international climate protection projects.
