Thursday, October 5th (4pm – 45pm CEST).
RE100 and Gold Standard look forward to co-hosting a webinar to introduce the new Gold Standard label for renewable energy market instruments.
Part of Gold Standard for the Global Goals, which new quality label for renewable energy market instruments is designed to bring greater impact to renewable energy markets. The label will provide assurance that renewable energy projects are developed to the highest quality in terms of environmental integrity, stakeholder inclusivity and safeguards, while also delivering impact toward multiple Sustainable Development Goals. This webinar will discuss how purchasers of renewable energy can demonstrate that their investment makes a direct contribution to the clean energy transition by adding new renewable capacity to the grid.
The webinar will answer following questions:
- Why a quality label is needed to accelerate the transition to renewable energy?
- What’s different and what can be claimed?
- The business case for procuring premium RECs?
