Who we are
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.
We encourage organizations implement standards that ensure businesses have efficient and adaptable systems in place that keep the ecosystem at the forefront. The growing list of standards includes: construction, site operations, health and occupational safety, products and services without limiting the carbon footprint.
To provide eco-friendly solutions facilitating the balance between economic development, social progress, and environmental protection while improving performance, profits, and competitiveness.
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.
An easy-to-implement integrated program
At CGP, we go beyond simple combination of international standards, procedures and practices. We include education and a certification program based on sustainable development and cost-effectiveness that will provides direction for the implementation and structure of a workable program.
The program is applicable across all industries and sectors, large or small, regardless of products or services offered. Its standards are sufficiently flexible and include performance indicators that can be applied according to the certification level, the geographic area, and local factors.
The CGP program is a guide of corporate social responsibility allowing companies to address their obligations to minimize the harmful impacts to the environment by voluntarily following a set of externally set and measured objectives.
The foundation of the certification program consists of six principles. Together, they can enable your operation to improve its environmental impact while complying with global demands: Leadership, Involvement of Team Members, Process Approach, System Approach to Management, Continual Improvement and Objective Approach to Decision-Making.

Create strong environmental
strategies and operations
by becoming certified!
Although CGP combined international standards and create the certification program, we do not perform the entire process. It must be completed by a third-party organization either way implementation or audit process. CGP will issue the certificate and the right to use the CGP Seal of Compliance once process has been completed.
There are three levels of certification: Basic Green, Green, and Green Plus. Regardless of the certification level chosen by a participating entity, CGP 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 standards that must be met.
