Just one of our standards,


can improve quality, well-being

and efficiency.

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.

Our timeline

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.

Our plain sailing

standards can help


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.


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.


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.


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.


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


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


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.


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


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.
