Validation Services

In the global fight against climate change, many nations are already committed to reduce energy consumption and have set ambitious goals to minimise carbon emissions. To achieve net zero targets, there must be significant decarbonisation and a substantial change will be required in the way energy is generated, stored, transported, and consumed.

At TÜV SÜD, we provide a better understanding of GHG emission impacts across your business value chain, organisational level and/or product life cycle by providing independent validation, verification and assurance services.
