Freelance auditing services enable private accreditation firm to work eco standard

The challenge: Probus Sigma, a Portugese finance company, was authorised to provide accreditation for private voluntary carbon standard 14065, set up after the Kyoto protocol to certify projects designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But they didn’t have an accredited quality auditor to assess the projects.


The solution: We provided auditing services on a freelance basis to enable them to work the standard.


The benefits: The client was able to fulfil its remit by being able to call upon a reliable, flexible, cost-effective, qualified freelance auditor with the necessary scientific qualifications.
