Verra has established an Auditing and Accreditation team to oversee Validation and Verification Body (VVB) performance in all Verra standards programs. Audits conducted by VVBs must ensure the integrity of all projects registered with Verra. The addition of a dedicated Auditing and Accreditation team will significantly strengthen VVBs’ capacity to audit projects in Verra’s certification programs and reflects Verra’s commitment to certifying high-quality projects that credibly advance climate action and sustainable development.
Janice O’Brien, Director, Auditing and Accreditation, will lead this work. She brings a wealth of experience overseeing operations, client care, and quality monitoring in the delivery of credible third-party auditing services. Three senior managers will join the team to track VVB performance, manage project site visits, and contribute to training and supporting VVBs.
