Demonstrating your continued commitment to low carbon emissions, the Verification against the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) scheme involves the allocation and trading of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission allowances throughout the European Union.
Established in 2005, the EU ETS is the world’s first international emissions trading system and is currently in its fourth period, remaining in effect until 31st December 2030. The fourth period of EU-ETS includes harmonised monitoring, reporting and allocation methodologies and requires each eligible installation to produce an annual emissions report that verifies emissions and allocation levels for the previous calendar year.
