Green-e Climate has certified products offered by retailers 3Degrees, Bonneville Environmental Foundation, Community Energy and Renewable Choice Energy, according to the Center for Resource Solutions based in San Francisco. These products have met or exceeded Green-e Climate's standards for project verification and measurement, consumer transparency and truth-in-marketing claims, and will be granted the use of the Green-e Climate logo.

"We are excited to have these four sellers offering the first Green-e Climate Certified offsets," says Lars Kvale, Green-e Climate manager. "Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is crucial, and offsets give us a way to go beyond conservation and energy efficiency. Consumers can feel confident that these certified offsets have been verified and are exactly as advertised."

Green-e Climate is a consumer-protection program requiring that greenhouse gas emission reductions be verified according to project-level certification that ensures the reductions have taken place, are permanent and come from projects that would not have happened under a "business as usual" scenario.
