Below are listed few industries we have extreme expertise in working with; however, we do work with all fields of business.
Green Building. CGP can assist its members with the structure and application of environmentally responsible and
resource-efficient processes throughout a building’s life-cycle: from planning to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and demolition. With the complexities surrounding the real estate development and construction industry, it is imperative to ensure that efficiencies are in place.

Food and Agriculture. CGP’s international guidelines create confidence in the products we eat or drink by ensuring the world uses the highest food quality and safety criteria. CGP’s guidelines provide specifications regarding the food chain, agricultural machinery, logistics, transportation, manufacturing, labeling, packaging, and storage.
Products and services. CGP verifies and accredits the quality of any kind of consumer products or services to help its members and their supply chain meet environmental regulations. This verification and accreditation of quality include, but are not limited to, textiles, agriculture, interior design, construction materials, chemicals, furniture manufacturing, technology, science, automotive, and healthcare-related services.

Health and Safety. Occupational health and safety practices require the collaboration and participation of both employers and workers. CGP’s role is to set and enforce standards, provide training, outreach, and education, and encourage continual workplace safety and health improvement.

CGP’s International Standards are applicable across all industries and sectors, large or small, regardless of products or services offered. CGP’s guidelines are sufficiently flexible and include key performance indicators that can be applied according to certification level, geographic area, and local factors.

Become Certified

Become Certified

 
Although CGP created the internationally recognized certification program, we do not perform the entire process. A third-party organization must conduct an audit to determine if the CGP guidelines have been followed. Once the process has been completed, CGP issues the certificate and the rights to use the CGP Seal of Compliance.

There are three certification levels. All documented sustainable efforts are considered and converted into points using a 100-Point Scale consisting of 8 tiers.

Our Evolution

Our Evolution

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 combining international environmental standards, procedures, and practices. The program was based on the 3Ps of the global vision of sustainable development established by the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development.
As the scope of CGP’s services grew in size, in late 2010, CGP aligned its objectives by partnering with the Developers & Builders Alliance (DBA). Because of this partnership, the leadership and expertise of the DBA’s members, CGP has positioned itself as an influential certification organization. CGP and the DBA merged brands in May 2019 under the CGP name.

With the rapid shift to a new era of business optimization, CGP changed its strategy. In April 2021, the merged organization established a platform with wide-reaching commercial relationships in every industry that fosters connections and interactions with the highest-level executives .
