GHG Certification Standard Out for Stakeholder Comment
The new Green-e Greenhouse Gas Product Certification Standard is now out for stakeholder comment. The Center for Resource Solutions is developing the new standard with the Green-e GHG Advisory Group, composed of environmental organizations, government agencies, businesses, and advocacy organizations.
CRS believes the creation of this draft standard is the first step in ensuring credibility in the marketplace for voluntary GHG reduction products. CRS aims to provide consumer protection to the growing number of individuals and businesses who choose to decrease their own contribution to global warming by purchasing greenhouse gas reductions.
“We believe in transparency above all else,” said Jan Hamrin, president of the Center for Resource Solutions. “For the past six months, CRS staff has worked with the GHG Advisory Group to craft an independent standard we feel confident in. Just as we did with the Green-e standard for renewable energy products, this new standard will incorporate stakeholder comments from any interested party.”
The draft standard will be out for comment until the end of January 2007. CRS will host a stakeholder conference call in late January. If you are interested in becoming a stakeholder, please contact Alex Pennock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
