Dr. Schuh led the Canadian climate change practice for PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) for a decade. During that period she was responsible for developing the greenhouse gas assurance (verification) services, including training, infrastructure development and delivery. She developed and tested the verification methodology in Canada and assisted in extending the structured verification approach for multiple climate change systems (including ETS, WCI, Australian and Alberta) using an accounting based framework for PwC US and Global. She developed one of the first greenhouse gas verification standards for the Aluminum industry in early 2003. She is the co-facilitator for ISO 14064-3 on greenhouse gas assurance and authored the bulk of that standard. She was one of three experts that assisted in crafting the accounting standard on GHG assurance (ISAE 3410). She currently sits on the ISO international working group developing a standard on carbon capture and storage. She assisted in the verification content for the WRI/WBCSD greenhouse gas standards on corporate and project accounting. She has worked with several governments (including Alberta, Quebec and British Columbia) in establishing greenhouse gas quantification methodologies that are consistent with science and general accounting principles and assisted with the design of policy elements. Recently, she has extended her knowledge of carbon trading systems to other applications and assisted Alberta Environment and Sustainable Development in developing a trading system for wetlands.
Dr. Schuh currently advises the Climate Change Emissions Management Corporation (CCEMC) on the integrity of offset projects (carbon credits). She has recently authored the Greenhouse Gas Verification Guidance at Reasonable Level of Assurance for Alberta Environment and Sustainable Development. Her unique blend of engineering and assurance theory, knowledge, and experience position her as one of the leading experts in the world on greenhouse gas verification.
