Green-e Energy and Green-e Climate are governed by an independent board called “The Green-e Governance Board” (Board). The Center for Resource Solutions serves as the program administrator.
The Board ensures that the Program’s standards and policies are appropriate and necessary to meet its stated goals and objectives, and that certification and verification are handled in a credible and effective manner. The Board regularly reviews the Program’s standards and will amend them as necessary so that they remain consistent with changing circumstances and evolve with market conditions. The Board will receive and act on recommendations from the Power Marketers Advisory Committee (PMAC), the Utility Green Pricing Advisory Committee (UGPAC), the Climate Marketers Advisory Committee (CMAC), and an Advisory Stakeholder Group to ensure the Program is practical and consistent with broader public policies. Two subcommittees of the Board will also serve to review and make recommendations for Board approval of Green-e applications for utility green pricing programs, and for implementation of and review of applications to the Green-e Climate Standard.
