•• Stakeholder support

Stakeholders play a critical role.

The International REC Standard Foundation board regulates the use of the I-REC Standard, Code documents and other governance documents. These are always created with stakeholder input and support. In this way we can ensure that the REC standards are inline with stakeholder expectations and the requirements of local authorities.

The I-REC Standard has requirements and best practices written directly into the International Attribute Tracking Standard. These best practices require all market facilitators to act in a way that is transparent, fair, and equitable to all market players. In this way, there each market player can be guaranteed the same opportunities as other market players provided by the market facilitator.
