Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) are an established instrument to document the origin of renewably produced electricity and trace it from its source to one final consumer.
Recognised by all major sustainability reporting initiatives, they are quickly deployed to help meet renewable energy targets, particularly in countries and regions where other renewable procurement solutions may be challenging or unavailable.
We deliver RECs globally in countries with and without national or regional schemes
There are many different types of Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) systems worldwide, but all function in similar ways. We can develop I-RECs in almost any country though feasibility studies may be required for some.
RECs are recognised as the most precise tool to achieve renewable energy commitments and objectives within the following framework
Labels certifying additional impacts from RECs projects
For clients that want to go beyond renewable energy claims, South Pole also offers a suite of quality labels that allow them to make certifiable claims on the additional impacts of your RECs purchases. Various labels are available in different markets and ensure your certificates come from projects with additional quality criteria and include non-profit endorsements, independent third-party audits, and verified environmental or social safeguards and impacts benefiting local communities and supporting SDGs.
