An easy-to-implement integrated program
Certified Green Partners® (CGP) is an independent, non-governmental certification organization, providing high-quality and easy-to-implement global standards to promote sustainable and equitable economies.
By implementing the CGP standards through an integrated environmental management program, all public and private organizations, regardless of size, industry, the goods produced, or the services offered, will comply with green requirements and governmental regulations.
This is what we've done over the years
The CGP program was based on the principles of the 3Ps (People, Profit, and Planet) of the global vision of sustainable development that was established by the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in 1992.
Founded in 2006 and headquartered in Miami, Florida, Certified Green Partners® began offering educational seminars to help print shops mitigate the impact of their operations, specifically through their use of paper, ink, and recycling.
As we expanded our industry markets, we realized that seminars on these basic points were not enough to make a positive impact on the environment. In 2008, CGP created an integrated environmental management program by combining international standards, procedures, and practices.
Today, continuing our objectives, we are constantly updating our guidelines to meet new global requirements.

Although CGP created the guidelines and the certification program, we do not perform the implementation process itself. The process is completed by a third-party organization, Elite Green Compliance International or any of its Subsidiaries. CGP provides education, issues certificates and the right to use the CGP Seal of Compliance once the audit process has been completed by one of our team members.
There are three levels of certification: Basic Green, Green, and Green Plus. Regardless of the certification level chosen by a participating entity, Elite Green Compliance International will assess current practices and create a customized plan that will help any company reach the desired environmental requirements through flexible performance indicators that can be customized by certification level, geographic area, and regional factors.
All documented sustainable efforts are taken into consideration and converted into points using a scale that consists of 8 tiers. Each of these tiers represents a fixed number of points. The certification level of the company is based on the number of sustainability points accumulated, among other guidelines that must be met.
Becoming certified you can benefit in a number of ways, including:
Reduce your carbon footprint will decrease operating costs and increase profitability.
Occupational Safety and Health standards in your organization will improve processes flow, quality, well-being and efficiency.
