The organisation and working procedures of the DOE DNV Climate Change Services A.S are completely independent from the organisation and working procedures of the DOE GLC.
DNV Climate Change Services AS is accredited by the UNFCCC (the United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change) as a Designated Operational Entity (DOE) under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). We were the first DOE accredited for the verification of all major CDM sectoral scopes.
By the end of 2012, we have been involved in the validation of 2833 CDM projects which represent 24% of all CDM projects submitted for validation. Out of these 2833 projects, 1686 are registered and represent an estimated annual emission reduction of 272 million tonnes CO2 equivalents.
We have been recently voted Best Verification Company by the readers of Environmental Finance.
Due to the current downturn in international carbon markets, without signs of a recovery in the foreseeable future, DNV GL has decided to cease providing validation and verification services for CDM and JI projects.
