To track your progress and needs.
The implementation of an MRV system is the basis for understanding the current GHG emission levels, the ambition of the existing efforts, the effectiveness and co-benefits of specific GHG-reduction policies and actions, and the progress made in achieving emissions reduction goals. MRV systems enable the collection of coherent data for policy and decision-making, improve access to funding or investment, and enhance national or internal capacities.
At a governmental level, the periodic reporting of national climate change-related information is required for all Parties under the UNFCCC.
At a corporate level, more and more leading global businesses are engaging in sustainability reporting as part of their social and environmental responsibility, with the aim to ensure credibility and bring stability and commercial added-value in the long term.
We accompany our clients to develop MRV systems that fit their specific needs and capabilities at a national, sectorial, and company or project level.
