The voluntary GPP program recognizes organizations that invest in green power in order to reduce environmental impact. Participants in the program obtain clean energy from a variety of sources, including onsite generation and RECs. RECs are the way green power is tracked and traded in North America, and can be obtained from a broad mix of renewables, including wind, solar, and biomass. In many cases, the commitment to green power is one among several environmental performance targets for GPP participants.
In 2012, the EPA recognized Renewable Choice as a Green Power Supplier of the Year. The firm has been selling RECs and carbon offsets since 2001 and is the recipient of numerous awards for its leadership in the green power industry. The company recently announced the launch of its subsidiary, Mosaic Labs, a full service sustainability consulting firm.
The need for organizations to improve their environmental performance has grown increasingly urgent, said Kris Lotlikar, President of Renewable Choice. Were pleased to be able to support so many leading companies in strategically addressing environmental impact through such a wide variety of practices.
