Brief description of the data offering

Verco has a long track record in providing independent assurance sevices of ESG disclosures in line with globally accepted standards, including ISAE3000 and ISO 14000 series.

We use our expertise and track record in net zero and carbon accounting, as well as real estate, to give an expert opinion on GHG calculations, methodologies, and strategies. We provide a clear, robust, methodical, and transparent service, which identifies areas of improvement, and helps you gain complete confidence in the elements underpinning your net zero journey.   

Our assurance-related services include:
•    Environmental reporting pre-assurance / assurance readiness.
•    Assurance of utility and GHG data against primary evidence in line with ISO standards – or pre-assurance reviews.
•    GHG accounting boundary and approach setting.
•    Development of a GHG accounting methodology aligned with ISO 14064-1.
•    Verification of a GHG accounting methodology using ISO 14064-3.
•    Net zero strategy verification using the TPT framework.
•    Reviews of risk identification and materiality exercises.

Where and how do you source your data?

Data used in the assurance process depends on the scope of the assurance engagement. We rely on data and evidence gathered from the appropriate stakeholders within the business, and contextualise this through information gathered from public sources. Our evidence gathering is adapted to the industry and we use our in-depth knowledge of the field of carbon accounting to assess the validity of calculations and claims.
