Community Greenhouse Gas Inventory 3rd Party Verification Memo

The City and County of San Francisco updates its Community Wide Greenhouse Gas Emissions inventory annually. However, full 3rd party verification and methodology improvements are conducted as needed or at least every three years. For the 2008 verification and the latest 2010 data verification Department of Environment has undergone an audit and verification process with ICF International. ICF International is an accredited 3rd party greenhouse gas verifier under the ISO 14065 GHG Accreditation Program with the California Climate Action Registry http://www.climateregistry.org/tools/verification/verifiers.html. Please read ICF's verification memo below. All data and calculations are also available upon request to the Climate Projects Manager.
