Verifavia: Checking shipping emissions

Paris: With climate change talks ongoing in Paris, one local firm is busy making sure shipping is prepared to whatever diktats are handed down by the UN delegates.

Verifavia provides shipping MRV carbon emissions pre-verification ‘gap analysis’ audits, shipping MRV emissions monitoring plan pre-approval services and independent shipping MRV carbon emissions verification services.

“Verifavia strives to be the maritime industry’s first choice for the provision of emissions verification information and services,” says the company’s ceo, Julien Dufour.

“We understand that MRV is new to the shipping industry,” he says, “which is why we are committed to sharing information and partnering with shipowners, operators and managers to help them navigate MRV compliance efficiently and effectively.”

Verifavia’s services are set to be more and more in demand as other parts of the world join the US and Europe in forming emissions control areas. China, for instance, has this week outlined details of its 2019 mandatory ECA.
