On Wednesday, March 8, 2017, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership (GPP) hosted a webinar with the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) examining the value of certification and verification in the green power market.
Switching to green power is easy with the right information but it can be difficult for buyers of green power to know whether they are buying credible products from credible suppliers. For this reason, EPA recommends, as a consumer best practice, buying green power products that are third-party certified and verified. Green power products certified by an independent third-party offers consumer a higher level of certainty about the integrity of their purchase.
The Center for Resource Solutions’ Green-e Energy program not only certifies green power products, but also independently verifies the products on an annual basis.
The webinar reviewed:
- Why certification is important
- Verification and marketing compliance review process
- How CRS sets Green-e standards
