Natural Capital Partners has retained its I-REC leadership position and is the first company to have cancelled more than 5 million International REC Standard (I-REC) renewable energy certificates on behalf of its clients, playing a critical role in the transformation to a low carbon electricity grid.
Clients including VMware, Sopra Steria, Microsoft and Logitech, work with Natural Capital Partners to meet their renewable energy targets with portfolios of renewable energy certificates generated in locations to match their consumption. I-REC was founded in 2014 to build the tracking systems that are essential for reliable, credible renewable energy consumption claims in countries beyond the European GO system or North American REC systems.
Natural Capital Partners has continued to build widespread adoption of the standard across a number of countries, including China, Israel, Uganda, the Philippines, Brazil, India, Singapore and Vietnam
Having completed some of the first transactions of I-RECs in 2015, Natural Capital Partners has continued to build widespread adoption of the standard across a number of countries, including China, Israel, Uganda, the Philippines, Brazil, India, Singapore and Vietnam.
“Our role is to constantly innovate and evolve our solutions, so that our clients can move to a clean, low carbon energy system. We identified the I-REC Standard as a critical enabler of that change and are delighted that we’re playing such a significant role in building that sustainable infrastructure throughout the world,” says Oliver Crouch, Chief Product Officer at Natural Capital Partners.
“As a stakeholder-driven initiative, the success of the I-REC Standard has been built on early movers like Natural Capital Partners, who have worked diligently to promote the use of the standard and drive its geographic expansion into new markets. As the standard becomes more widely available, we hope that electricity consumers around the globe will increasingly recognise the critical importance of choosing a renewables product”, says Jared Braslawsky, Secretary General at the International REC Standard Foundation (I-REC Standard).
The I-REC Standard is a non-profit organisation that provides a robust standard for use around the world to track the renewable attributes of electricity. This standard requires local stakeholders and government authorities to implement it in their countries and ensure it meets local and national regulations.
