Support & Recognition:
Gree helps food processors in emerging countries to unlock access to proven European technology, carbon credit markets and green financing.
We empower them to deliver today biogas projects that cut methane emissions, treat wastewater and generate clean energy in underserved rural communities.
What do you want to learn more about?
We fight climate change by scaling profitable biogas solutions that transform food industry waste into valuable resources for people and the planet.
In emerging countries, inadequate treatment of wastewater from food production is responsible for massive methane emissions, a super potent greenhouse gas and water pollution. The food industry generates more water pollution than a population of 319 million. That water pollution, in its turn, emits about 50 million tonnes of CO2eq per year, an equivalent of the pollution of 10 million cars. Inadequate treatment of wastewater from food production is responsible for massive methane emissions, a super climate pollutant that over 120 countries including Indonesia have committed to reducing as part of the Global Methane Pledge.
In Indonesia, leaving industrial wastewater untreated represents a loss of more than 40 TWh of clean and affordable energy that could be generated by capturing the methane produced, enough to provide reliable baseload power all year long to more than 10 millions of people in underserved rural communities.
Proven solutions already exist. We make them happen.
Biogas technology can cut food industry methane emissions and transform industrial wastewater into biogas for renewable energy, carbon credits and natural fertilizers. However, for most food processors in emerging countries, these technologies are not accessible nor affordable. Gree Energy bridges this gap.
Our team has more than 50 years of combined experience in carbon expertise, resilient and regenerative food supply chains and clean power generation to enable food processors to tap into the carbon credit and renewable energy markets and green finance, and make biogas technologies within the reach of food processors.
Our biogas solutions are recognized by international certification bodies and government-led funds.
Positive impact is at the core of everything we do to create real benefits to the people and the planet. Gree Energy is B Corp certified and meets the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance. Our solutions are also compliant with world-class industry standards including:
- Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), the world’s most widely used voluntary GHG carbon credit program that has collectively reduced or removed more than 966 million tonnes of carbon and other GHG emissions from the atmosphere.
- IFC’s Environmental and Social Performance Standards (IFC PS), an international benchmark for identifying and managing environmental and social risk.
- IRIS+, the generally accepted system for measuring, managing, and optimizing impact.
- Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.
Our business model is supported by prominent intergovernmental organizations such as UN programme Seed Capital Assistance Facility and the International Renewable Energy Agency and European Government development agencies and investment funds such as French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM) and Agence Française de Développement (AFD).
Supported by powerful partners around the world.
Our team has decades of combined experience in carbon emission expertise and resilient and regenerative food supply chains. We use world class industry standards including VCS, IFC PS, IRIS+, and SDG and our business model is supported by prominent international development agencies and organizations such as SCAF, FFEM, AFD, UKAID, and IRENA.
