Benefits of Certification

In a world where demand for energy is growing and predicted to grow for decades, more energy development projects in more populated and more environmentally sensitive areas is a certainty. At the same time, major companies and entire industries are working to manage or eliminate social and environmental risks in their supply chains, and are more concerned than ever with the impacts of the energy they consume.

Equitable Origin helps differentiate and reward the most innovative, responsible energy producers.

Equitable Origin brings transparency to energy development that can significantly reduce social and environmental risks. Through our site certification program, Equitable Origin provides credible, independent recognition to energy developers that lead their sector in social and environmental performance.
