In addition, GLC can provide assessment services for GHG mitigation projects in the context of VERs (Voluntary/Verified Emission Reductions) and in case of hydro power projects exceeding 20 MW installed capacity we can provide assessment services against the guidelines of the World Commission on Dams (WCD). ​

The organization and working procedures of the DOE GLC are completely independent from the organization and working procedures of the DOE DNV Climate Change Services A.S.

Our authorization as a Designated Operational Entity (DOE) goes hand in hand with proven competence in the following scopes:

  • Scope 1 Energy industries (renewables and non-renewables)
  • Scope 2 Energy distribution
  • Scope 3 Energy demand
  • Scope 4 Manufacturing Industries
  • Scope 5 Chemical Industries
  • Scope 7 Transport
  • Scope 8 Mining / Mineral Production
  • Scope 10 Fugitive emissions from fuels (solid, oil and gas) 
  • Scope 13 Waste handling and disposal
  • Scope 15 Agriculture

GLC has its own team of experienced auditors that provide first-class validation and verification services. You can benefit from a centrally organised department with local presences in South/Central America, Africa and Asia who is strictly committed to quality and timelines. In addition this team can call on the extensive expertise of the globally operating DNV GL network of experts. As the world’s No. 1 in wind turbine certification, for example, DNV GL has proven competence in renewables, a key segment for CDM projects. This kind of market-leading expertise will be at your disposal when you call on our validation and verification services.

We provide assessment services for conventional CDM projects as well as PoA’s.

Please contact us to learn more about our team and review the list of completed assessments to gain an overview of our experience or click on this link.

Based on your demand we can offer to assign a key contact who will be available to provide an overview of the assessment status either via short summary reports or via regular conference calls. 

Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) 

The CDM is one of the mechanisms the Kyoto Protocol defines as a means of achieving a sustained, quantifiable and cost-effective reduction in greenhouse gases. What you need to know is how your CDM project activity can be validated and verified competently and quickly – so you can benefit from emission trading in CO2 or other greenhouse gases (GHG). The answer is to call on the services of Germanischer Lloyd Certification (GLC).

Gold Standard and Voluntary Carbon Standard

We can also verify your Voluntary/Verified Emission Reductions (VERs) obtained through projects not covered by the Kyoto Protocol. We understand that the challenge in this segment of the carbon market is to ensure that these projects still fulfil the high standards for emission reductions and are proved to be credible. The range of services we offer in the context of standards such as the Gold Standard or the Voluntary Carbon Standard is similar to our CDM service portfolio.

World Commission on Dams (WCD)

The World Commission on Dams developed a guideline which aims to ensure that hydro projects are developed along the options least damaging to the environment (exploring possible alternatives) and addressing such issues as gaining public acceptance, and fair and equitable treatment of all affected stakeholders, including local and indigenous people. 

In line with Article 11b(6) of the Directive 2004/101/EC Member States approving hydroelectric CDM projects above the threshold of 20 MW have to "ensure compliance (of such projects) with the international criteria and guidelines, including those contained in the World Commission on Dams 2000 Report."

In other words the respective EU Member State DNA requests an assessment against the WCD guideline if CDM credits shall be surrendered in the Member States registries under the EU ETS generated from hydroelectric projects exceeding 20 MW of installed capacity. 

Based on your demand you can choose between our cost effective combined CDM-/WCD assessment approach or an independent WCD assessment. In both cases you can benefit from a centrally organised department with local presences in South America, Africa and Asia who is strictly committed to quality and timelines.
