GREENHOUSE GAS VERIFICATION
Brightspot Climate experts have completed over 200 independent verifications of industrial facility annual greenhouse gas emission reports. Verification of industrial facility greenhouse gas reports for regulatory compliance requires in-depth knowledge of the applicable quantification methodologies, with focus on key details such as proper emission source categorization, measurement and sampling frequencies, validation of data and contingent data approaches.
Numerous companies have engaged Brightspot Climate to provide verification services for industrial facilities in the following sectors:
Oil and gas extraction and processing (natural gas plants, in-situ oil sands facilities, refining, upgrading)
