Verified Assurance Marks & Their Usage
Additional information about the various assurance marks and usage guidelines for them.
If you have had your carbon emissions verified under the mandatory EU Emissions Trading Scheme (Stationary and Aviation) you are eligible to use the Carbon Footprint EU ETS Verified Assurance Mark.
Do you report your carbon emissions under the CRCEES (Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme); CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) or according to the WRI-WBCSD GHG Protocol? If you have your data independently verified by Lucideon you can use the Carbon Footprint verification mark.
If your organisational footprint is calculated according to the international standard ISO 14064-1 you can use this mark which is universally recognised.
If you have a Carbon Footprint for a product or service we can verify it to PAS 2050, you will then be able to use the PAS 2050 Assurance Mark on your marketing literature.
Sustainability/Environmental Reports are fast becoming the norm. Verification proves to your stakeholders that your data is accurate and credible – and allows you to receive the Sustainability Assurance Mark. If we verify your CR Report for the Business in the Community (BITC) initiative, you will also receive this mark. This mark is also used for those organisations who successfully achieve verification of their water consumption and waste utilisation.
Lucideon clients are encouraged to use their assurance marks. Underpinning these is a detailed Verification or Assurance Statement but the marks enable companies and organisations to achieve good publicity over their environmental/sustainability practices. Marks can be used on company literature, websites and signage.
