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.

By following and applying 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 environmental requirements and governmental regulations.

Vision  

To provide eco-friendly solutions facilitating the balance between economic development, social progress, and environmental protection while improving performance, profits, and competitiveness.

Our timeline

This is what we've done over the years

3Ps

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.

Founding

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.

Program

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.

Present

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.

Our plain sailing

standards can help

CARBON FOOTPRINT

CGP has produced an Integrated Environmental Management Program that sheds light on the importance of consistency in the guidelines of this field. Just one indicator can break down trade barriers and help build a more sustainable future.

SUSTAINABLE PURCHAISING

Consumers want products with the best possible price-quality ratio, without considering the sustainability of natural resources and the supply chain. By following the CGP standards, we can help you change the way we produce and consume goods and resources.

GREEN BUILDING

We can assist you, with the structure and the application of processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building's life-cycle: from planning to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and demolition.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

We can help you meet the energy demands by increasing energy efficiency and promoting the development of renewable energy technologies. This ensures an optimal cost-effective option to reduce energy costs.

WATER CONSERVATION

CGP’s water guidelines build confidence through consensus-based global solutions for optimal business practice, management of resources, risk assessment, metrics, and infrastructure.

FOOD

CGP’s food guidelines provide specifications regarding the food chain, agricultural machinery, logistics, transportation, manufacturing, labeling, packaging, and storage.

SERVICES

Services represent more than two-thirds of the world’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). CGP works with guidelines that help ensure that services are of a consistently high quality.

HEALTH & SAFETY

Occupational health and safety practices require the collaboration and participation of both employers and workers. CGP role is to set and enforce standards; provide training, outreach and education, and encouraging continual improvement in workplace safety and health.

Create strong environmental

strategies and operations

by becoming certified!


Although CGP created the standards and the certification program, we do not perform the implementation process itself. The process is completed by a third-party organization. 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, 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.
