Spanish Minister visits LRQA stand at Carbon Expo 2013

Following the opening ceremony of Carbon Expo 2013 - the leading annual event for the carbon market - LRQA's CDM Quality Manager, Javier Vallejo Drehs, spoke to Miguel Arias Cañete, the Spanish Minister for Agriculture, Food and Environment as he toured the exhibition.

The Minister was interested to find out LRQA's role in the carbon market, particularly how LRQA works with developing countries.  We explained how LRQA’s focus is on helping our clients to verify their sustainability strategies, environmental and emissions management assertions are trustworthy, credible and accurate – throughout their supply chain. In turn, this helps ensure our clients are able to receive fair recognition for their sustainability improvements from financial markets, regulators, customers and consumers.

At an organisational level, we explained how LRQA can help assure that an organisation's environmental and emissions management programs are verifiable, accurate and reliable.

LRQA’s strong record in environmental assurance provides the foundation for a range of assessment, certification and verification services around the world.
