LRQA: EMBRAER Case Study - Carbon Disclosure Project Verification Strategy

  1. 1. EMBRAER CASE STUDY The value of independently verified data for Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) reporting Improving performance, reducing risk
  2. 2. Embraer’s Greenhouse Gas Challenge The Company: • One of the world’s main aircraft manufacturers. • Global customer base with units in Brazil, USA, Europe and Asia. The Challenge: • Environmental sustainability is critical in the aircraft industry.
  3. 3. Embraer’s Commitment The Commitment: • Monitor Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. • Achieve targeted GHG reductions. • Become a transparent and environmentally responsible organisation by demonstrating the effectiveness of climate change mitigation actions through independent verification against ISO 14064-1.
  4. 4. The Approach & Key Takeaways • In 2007, Embraer started developing and implementing management processes based upon the international standard ISO 14064-1:2006. • In 2010, and in order to assure the accuracy of such data and information, Embraer appointed Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance to audit the related 2009 base year GHG inventory against ISO 14064-1:2006. • This audit allowed Embraer to correct and improve its processes as well as being able to integrate diverse areas of the business.
  5. 5. Benefits & Results • Improved the quality of information and deadlines met for preparing the annual GHG inventory. • Defined and implemented a GHG Emissions Management System, based on ISO14064- part 1. • Increased awareness across all administrative and operational areas. • Increased transparency with key stakeholders thus demonstrating Embraer’s commitment to being a greener organisation. • Minimised environmental impact by mapping significant aspects and impacts of the GHG processes, enabling Embraer to establish reduction targets.
  6. 6. Embraer’s Reaction In the Verification of Climate Data White Paper, produced by the CDP, Embraer emphasised the importance of verification: “The external verification process was of particular importance to Embraer as it allowed the company to demonstrate the credibility of the organisation to external stakeholders through independently verified and accurate data. In addition, Embraer was able to develop robust internal mechanisms for quantifying and reporting their GHG emissions in future.”
  7. 7. Embraer’s Reaction In the CDP’s Verification White Paper, Embraer also underlined the positive outcomes of this process: “Embraer has found that throughout the process which took about six months in the first year - it was able to benefit by using information to correct and improve its process as well as being able to integrate diverse areas of the business.”
