ESI is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) under ISO 14065:2013 for greenhouse gas validation and verification bodies, including: ISO 14064-3:2006, ISO 14065:2013, validation/verification of assertions related to GHG emission reductions and removals at the project level for Land Use and Forestry (Group 3), and verification of assertions related to GHG emissions and removals at the organizational level. ESI has been accredited by the ANSI to perform third-party validations and/or verification since March of 2010. Due to strict confidentiality requirements associated with many of our current and past validation and verification projects, we are unable to discuss the full details of the projects; however, the following is a limited list of AFOLU offset project validations and/or verifications, offset methodology assessments, and organizational-level GHG emissions inventory verifications completed by country.
