Green-e Renewable Energy Standard for Chile Launches with Viña Concha y Toro Collaboration
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (APRIL 13, 2018)—San Francisco–based NGO Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) is developing a new standard for certifying the sale and use of green power in Chile through its market-leading Green-e® certification program. During the development of the new Green-e® Renewable Energy Standard for Chile, Green-e will conduct a pilot certification process with Chile-based Viña Concha y Toro, one of the world’s largest wine producers. CRS will work with Viña Concha y Toro to verify its renewable energy procurement according to the Green-e® Framework for Renewable Energy Certification and a forthcoming stakeholder-driven Standard specifically developed for the Chilean market. If successful, this will enable Viña Concha y Toro’s wines to be vinted and bottled using 100% Green-e® certified renewable energy.
