Germany: GL Systems Certification Joins WindMade
GL Systems Certification has joined WindMade as one of its accredited verifying partners. The certification body of classification society Germanischer Lloyd thereby commits itself to supporting the WindMade label by aiding in the development of the label.
The WindMade label, which is backed by the UN Global Compact, WWF, Vestas and the Global Wind Energy Council, requires participating companies to obtain at least 25% of their electricity from wind power. The WindMade label was created to allow companies to communicate their commitment to renewable energy while providing consumers with the choice to favour companies and products using wind power.
“WindMade fits in with our Vision, Mission and Values, and our goal of becoming a world class technical advisor and trusted partner in assurance, consulting and classification. Our mission is to do so in a way that is safer, greener and smarter,” said Markus Weber, GL Systems Certification. “By supporting the use of renewable energies and verifying this use with the WindMade label, we can help to build consumer confidence in the environmental credibility of products.”
“GL Systems Certifications is one of the world’s leading certification service providers, both in the renewable energy sector and beyond, and we are proud to count the company among our members,” said Henrik Kuffner, WindMade’s CEO.
