We help
organizations implement

a productive and cost-effective program that maximizes every phase of corporate environmental responsibility, encompassing carbon footprint, sustainability, occupational safety, and the accountable sourcing of products and services.

Designed to bring the organization towards certification, the implementation process progresses through a series of steps, including the production of internal manuals and documents, in compliance with governmental standards.

Our mission is to facilitate sustainable development, delivering improved long-term equitable performance, profits, and competitive advantage.


Founded in 2006 and headquartered in Miami, Florida, CGP offered educational seminars
to help print shops mitigate the environmental impact of their operations, specifically
through their use of paper, ink, and recycling.

As we expanded our markets, we realized that seminars on these basic points were insufficient to achieve a positive environmental impact. In 2008, CGP created an integrated environmental management program by synthesizing international standards, procedures, and practices.

The program was based on the 3Ps (People, Profit, and Planet) of the global vision of sustainable development that was established by the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development.

In late 2012, Certified Green Partners® aligned with the global sustainable development trend by partnering with the Developers and Builders Alliance® (DBA).
Through this partnership, the leadership and expertise of its honorary founding members, Gil Dezer, Donald J. Trump, and Jorge M. Pérez, and its global partners, CGP was able to position itself as a powerful certification organization.

Driven by a common goal and the rapid shift into a new era of business, DBA and CGP merged brands in the beginning of May 2020.

Today, true to our goals, we dynamically update our standards to meet global requirements.

 

Our standards


CGP bases its principles on global sustainability standards, which are sufficiently flexible and include performance indicators that can be applied according to certification level, geographic area, and local factors.

Our standards of operational integrity include quality control that covers aspects like environment, food, energy, supply chain, and risk management. Moreover, our standards facilitate sustainable development, social responsibility, and occupational health and safety.

Our standards of operational integrity include quality control that covers aspects like environment, food, energy, supply chain, and risk management. Moreover, our standards facilitate sustainable development, social responsibility, and occupational health and safety.

There are three levels of certification:

Basic Green, Green, and Green +. Each level assesses current practices and creates a customized plan that helps any company comply with conservational requirements and governmental regulations.

Although CGP created the internationally-recognized certification program, we do not perform the entire process. A third-party organization must complete the process either by implementation or via audit to determine if the CGP standards have been met. Once the process has been completed, CGP issues the certificate and rights to use the CGP Seal of Compliance.

All documented sustainable efforts are taken into consideration and converted into credits using a 100-Point Scale that consists of eight tiers, representing a fixed number of points. The company’s certification level is based on the number of sustainability points accumulated, as well as other required standards.

We provide training to assure that the person in charge has received the appropriate knowledge and is capable of keeping the organization in compliance with CGP standards, environmental laws, and regulations.

He/she must complete a comprehensive test of 100 questions and successfully achieve a score of at least 95%. Once completed, a Certified Environmental Associate Certificate will be issued in recognition of their knowledge and training.
