NSF becomes verification provider for CDP

May '18
NSF International, a global public health and safety organisation, has joined hands with CDP, a not-for-profit organisation that operates a global disclosure system to help companies and municipalities accurately measure, manage and report environmental impacts, to become its verification provider. NSF will verify CDP-submitted emissions data as third party.

This will help organisations demonstrate and verify their environmental impacts to customers, investors, regulators and other stakeholders.

CDP, formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project, drives companies, cities, states and regions to quantify and reduce their environmental impacts, and helps policy makers, investors and purchasers make informed financial and purchasing decisions that take environmental impact into account.

“We’re pleased to be working with an organisation with an environmental reach as extensive as CDP’s,” said Jenny Oorbeck, general manager of NSF International’s Sustainability Programmes. “While a majority of businesses support United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), most have not determined how to put sustainability initiatives into action and measure against them. CDP reporting helps companies create, implement and maintain a sustainable business strategy and NSF’s independent verification services can play an important role in that process.”

NSF International has more than 70 years of experience conducting third-party audits and setting environmental health and safety standards, including extensive involvement in the development of ISO and international GHG (greenhouse gas) standards. NSF International’s verification services align with mandatory reporting requirements set by government agencies in the United States and Canada. In addition to its role as a CDP verification body, NSF International is an ANSI-accredited greenhouse gas verification and validation body.

“CDP is excited to welcome NSF International as a verification provider,” said Paul Robins, head of partnerships at CDP. “Emissions verification is an important step for companies to take and NSF International will be a valuable resource to the responding companies in the CDP network.” (SV)
