About the Training Program

DESIO delivers Scopes 1–3 GHG reporting services to our clients worldwide. We designed the “DEISO GHG Lead Verifier Training Program” from our experience with GHG accounting and reporting of Scopes 1-3 to our clients in which we report their GHG emissions. Our goal from this training program is to assist organizations in coping with GHG emissions via human resources development and skill-building. Visit to learn more about our GHG cloud-based reporting solutions. You may also discover more about Scope 3 emissions, which are the most difficult to compute, at

The DEISO GHG Lead Verifier training program is a thorough and extensive greenhouse gas (GHG) training program designed to help you become an expert in GHG accounting and reporting for your organization with carbon neutrality and its accounting with ISO 14604 standard compliance.

Our GHG Lead Verifier training program equips you with the in-demand skills and expertise needed to qualify as lead verifiers and assist your company in meeting ISO 14064 criteria in a challenging global environmental issue of climate change. The ISO14064-1 principles, GHG inventories, and management system standards are all covered in this training. Understanding the requirement and how to meet them. It combines an overview of carbon-neutral accounting and reporting concepts with the ISO 14064-Parts 1 and 3 reporting and verification criteria. You will also learn about carbon neutrality through case studies and examples worldwide.

  • You will also be taught for your business or consultants who want to learn more about the ISO 14064 Part, 2, and 3 criteria. Other aspects of the verification standards will be discussed, and real-life case studies will be necessary as part of the lead verifiers’ training.
  • With comprehensive training modules, you will learn how to gather and manage the organization’s data and understand the differences between Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 emissions. You will also learn about the value chain activities associated with Scope 3 emissions, which are the most complex emissions to compute (Scope 3).
  • You will also learn about the available tools and software and how to use them for this purpose. You will also learn how to utilize MS-Excel to account for GHG emissions.
  • You will learn to cope with inaccessible or missing data for certain organizational activities. Which calculating technique or methods should you use and why? How can the emission results be verified?
  • This course will cover both emissions. The direct and indirect emissions will highlight the value chain of the ISO standards for GHG accounting. Finally, you will learn how to professionally report GHG emissions to your organization, client, or government.
  • Another unique feature of this training is that it introduces you to GHG reduction approaches. How to design and implement strategic planning to meet organizational emission reduction goals. You can do so through a module of GHG reduction strategies combined with the knowledge and skills you learn, along with a practical case study.

Outcome & Syllabus

Module 01: The Climate Change, GHG Framework, and Net-zero Emissions

(3 hours)
  • You will learn about the Framework for climate change, carbon footprinting, and the emissions of GHGs.
  • Learn about carbon neutrality by looking at a few different instances.
  • Acquire an understanding of ISO 14064-1 standard.
  • Gain an understanding of the rules governing the calculation and reporting of emissions of GHGs.
  • Determination of the amounts of GHG emissions and their reductions.


Module 02: ISO 4064 Part 1-3

(3 hours)

This is appropriate for organizations or consultants that seek a deeper understanding of the requirements of ISO 14064 Part 1-3. Those thinking about aligning their GHG reporting with the requirements of ISO 14064-1 or preparing for independent verification of their GHG statement will benefit from this. Included are these topics:


  • GHG inventory and quality management (ISO 14064-1)
  • Introduction to ISO 14064-2
  • Basic concepts of GHG verification, SO 14064-), and the verification process

Module 03: Verification Requirements Verification Requirements.

(3 hours)

This includes further training on the verification standards and real-world case studies required for lead verifier training. The following subjects are covered:


  • On-site verification methodologies and instruments (ISO 14064-3)
  • A statement of verification
  • A case study using ISO 14064-1 and 3 based on real-world experience.

Module 04: Direct and Indirect Emissions – Scopes 1-3

(3 hours)

Emissions from Scopes 1 through 3 are covered in this module. Comprehending them with the differences and the significance of each is essential. Understand the difference between direct and indirect emissions and how to identify both types. Last but not least, selecting a method for calculating and reporting each scope’s emissions.

Module 06: The Value Chain

(2 hours)

Scope 3 is the most challenging scope to calculate. The value chain will be detailed in integrating it into the Scope 3 missions and connecting emissions to their sources. Discover the 15 downstream and upstream emissions that come under Scope 3 and what you need to know about them. How should the data for each category be collected? When OK to employ a variety and when it is not. A strategy for defending your decision to accept or reject particular persons from a group. How to include transparency into your accounting and reporting of GHG emissions.

Module 07: How to Address the Challenges of Scope 3 GHG Accounting

(2 hours)

Sometimes, addressing Scope 3 might be challenging. During this module, Weill will discuss the most common challenges of reporting Scope 3 emissions. About the data and the approaches to the calculations. How to choose which type of computing method is best for a particular situation. In this session, we will also discuss the GHG protocol for Scope 3, considering what we discovered in the module that came before it regarding the value chain.

Module 08: How to Incorporate Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) in Your GHG Accounting

(2 hours)

This module will introduce you to the concept of MFA and how to incorporate it among LCA of effective circular economy action plans.

Module 08: An Introduction to Agent-Based Modeling (ABM)

(2 hours)

The LCA is a powerful enough method to help. It is widely used to assess the environmental impact, including GHG (or Global Warming Potential GWP). Organizations and individuals can incorporate the whole life cycle of a product, service, or system in their GHG accounting and reporting, from Cradle-to-Grave. In this module, we will discuss LCA and offer guidance on how to include it in GHG assessment projects. This course will also give you some LCA background knowledge. When the time comes for you to utilize LCA in one of your projects, you can select the LCA trading program most suited to your needs from among the many LCA training programs we provide at DEISO.
