What is Green-e certification? Does your company’s CSR program mandate the purchase of renewable energy products?

January 8th, 2010

Suppliers of renewable energy products should be required to have Green-e certification and all new and remodel retail construction should buy certified renewable products.

For over ten years, the nonprofit Center for Resources (CRS) has developed and implemented consumer-protection standards for the voluntary renewable energy market through the Green-e program.

What is Green-e? Green-e is the nation’s leading independent consumer protection program for the sale of renewable energy and greenhouse gas reductions in the retail market. Green-e offers certification and verification of renewable energy and greenhouse gas mitigation products. It is a program of the Center for Resource Solutions.
Green-e Energy certifies renewable energy products sold to residential, commercial, industrial and wholesale customers. Certification services are available to all companies selling renewable energy. The process to get a renewable energy product certified varies depending on the type of product seeking certification, based on the following two categories of companies offering renewable energy products.

Ask your procurement solutions provider if they can tell you what companies carry this certification. SafeSourcing can.

We look forward to and appreciate your comments.
