LEADING ORGANIZATIONS TO SUSTAINABILITY
What we do
CGP helps businesses achieve compliance with international standards, regulations, procedures, and practices, leading any organization toward certification. CGP provides a verification-integrated management system program compatible with other management systems, barring specific requirements.
CGP verification program includes the operations evaluation, system and processes, products, and services. Evaluating each of these steps, the organization will significantly reduce its carbon footprint, optimize productivity and quality, and increase profitability, while decreasing risk and operating costs.
Our mission is to promote sustainability
facilitating the balance between economic development,
social progress, and environmental protection.
We serve a wide assortment of Industries
CGP can assist its clients with the structure and application of environmentally responsible and resource-efficient processes throughout a building’s life cycle: from planning to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and demolition. With the complexities surrounding the real estate development and construction industry, it is imperative to ensure that efficiencies are in place.
PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
CGP verifies and accredits the quality of any kind of consumer products or services to help its clients and their supply chain meet global regulations. This verification and accreditation of quality include, but are not limited to, printing, textiles, agriculture, interior design, construction materials, chemicals, furniture manufacturing, technology, science, automotive, and healthcare-related services.
FOOD AND AGRICULTURE
The CGP program creates confidence in the products we eat or drink by ensuring we use high-quality and safety criteria. CCP provides specifications regarding the food chain, machinery, logistics, transportation, manufacturing, labeling, packaging, retail, and storage.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
Occupational health and safety practices require the collaboration and participation of both employers and workers. CGP’s role is to set and enforce standards, provide training, and encourage continual workplace safety and health improvement.
CGP’s guidelines and recommendations are applicable across all industries and sectors, large or small, regardless of the products or services offered. CGP’s guidelines are sufficiently flexible and include key performance indicators that can be applied
according to certification level, geographic area, and local factors.
CGP provides education with a general working knowledge of social, economic, and environmental sustainability to become a Certified Environmental Professional Associate.
Participants interested in scaling their certification to AUDITOR must complete 25 hours online, 15 practice hours, and an audit report.
In addition, through our global Approved Training Partners (ATPs) we offer official e-learning courses included but not limited to BRCGS Food, SQF, ISO 9001, ISO 22000, ISO 45000, and FSCC22000.
Although CGP created the internationally recognized integrated certification program, we do not perform the entire process. A third-party organization must conduct an audit to determine if the CGP guidelines and recommendations have been followed. Once the process has been completed, CGP issues the certificate and the rights to use the CGP Seal of Compliance.
There are three certification levels – IMSP 1, IMSP 2, and IEMSP 3 (Integrated Management System Program). All documented sustainable efforts are considered and converted into points using a 100-Point Scale consisting of 8 tiers. Each of these tiers represents a fixed number of points. The certification level of the company is based on the number of sustainability points accumulated, among other guidelines that must be met.
Integrating a management system into your business operations will reduce your carbon footprint, decreases operating costs, risk management, and increases productivity and profitability. It will help your business to emerge as a supplier of choice for clients who consider ecological strategies, operations of suppliers and products as part of their green procurement policies.

Seal that works
Founded in 2008 and headquartered in Miami, Florida, Certified Green Partners® (CGP) started by offering educational seminars to help print shops mitigate the environmental impact of their operations, specifically through their use of paper, inks, and recycling. As we expanded our industry markets, we realized that seminars on these basic points were insufficient to achieve a positive ambient damage and pollution. Thus, CGP created an integrated verification management system program in line with globally accepted standards, procedures, and practices.
As the scope of our industry services grew in size, in late 2012, CGP partnered with the Developers & Builders Alliance (DBA) connecting its objectives of sustainable development.
Through this partnership, the leadership and expertise of the DBA’s founding members and global partners, CGP was able to position itself as a rather influential certification organization. CGP and the DBA merged brands in May 2019, under the Certified Green Partners name.
With the rapid shift to a new era of business in 2021, CGP reevaluated the principles on which it was founded. CGP expanded the scope of its program to enforce among others safety while producing food and pharmaceutical packaging.
The program’s objective was, and still is, to help organizations maximize every phase of their corporate responsibilities. Today, true to its vision, CGP continually updates its program driven by collective global action to reduce climate change.
