Welcome to Green Gold Label


The Green Gold Label programme is a certification system for sustainable biomass. It covers production, processing, transport and final energy transformation. Green Gold Label (GGL) provides standards for specific parts of the supply chain, as well as standards for tracking & tracing the origin of the biomass.



Green Gold Label has been operational since 2002 as the global certificate for sustainable biomass. With more than 5 million tonnes of biomass certified with the Green Gold Label in 9 years time, GGL is a leading, accredited certification system in the market. Green Gold Label is committed to supporting the development of sustainable biomass for energy, power production and chemical purposes.

Currently over 25 biomass suppliers are GGL certified producers/traders, as verified by Control Union Certifications, an accredited certification body.


GGL has launched a consultation period for its revised GGL biomass certification scheme. When you are interested to receive a copy, please submit your request through the Contact form on this website.


In addition, GGL will organize two stakeholder meetings this November. Please check the Events page for more information.
