Credibility

•• A reliable and recognized mechanism

A proven track record of success

The I-REC Standard ensures that all RECs are in adherence with major international sustainability standards including the GHGP, CDP, RE100, ISO and others. Energy consumers can use I-RECs to meet the requirements of these standards and/or corporate social responsibility policies. I-RECs are trusted by market players and NGOs alike. Stringent environmental labels have recognized them when they are produced from compliant production devices. Consequently, attribute tracking systems adherent to the I-REC Standard have a proven track record of robustness and trustworthiness, which have led to year-on-year increases in market volumes. 

The I-REC Standard is also recognized by national governments in multiple jurisdictions as the chosen method of end-user procurement of renewables.
