LRQA has announced its status as a verification partner of CDP, a global non-profit that runs the world’s environmental disclosure system for companies, cities, states and regions.
LRQA’s CDP verification services are designed to build confidence in sustainability and climate change strategies and ensure that the value of improved sustainability performance is realised in terms of financial markets, regulators and customers. Demand for organisations to monitor and disclose information about their climate change and environmental performance is growing, as measurement is increasingly recognised as a key driver of actionable change.
Over 13,000 companies representing 64% of global market capitalisation disclosed data through CDP in 2021, allowing investors with over $110 trillion in assets to drive investment and procurement decisions towards a zero carbon, sustainable and resilient economy. Independent, third-party verification from LRQA assures the accuracy, credibility and completeness of the environmental data a company discloses.
Heather Moore, sustainability specialist at LRQA said:
“CDP has been driving sustainability reporting and verification for 21 years and has proved that reporting and verification lead to improved performance. I am pleased to be partnering with CDP at this critical time for our world when organizations are focused on reaching net-zero.
“The process of verification not only ensures accuracy and adds credibility, but helps organisations better understand the strengths and weaknesses of its systems – helping to drive further improvement and costs and efficiency gains.”
Paul Robins, Head of Corporate Partnerships at CDP said:
“We are delighted to partner with LRQA and welcome them on board as a CDP silver verification solutions provider in the UK. LRQA supports businesses worldwide to transform their sustainability performance. They are one of the longest-standing greenhouse gas (GHG) verification providers and as such are well equipped to provide third-party certification, verification and assurance of environmental data.
LRQA provides a range of climate change and sustainability assurance services, with its specialist team providing accredited third-party certification, validation, verification and training across a broad spectrum of standards.
