General Electric's ECOMAGINATION certification program

As a global leader in power generation and energy delivery technologies, GE is uniquely suited to address some of the world's most pressing environmental dilemmas, today and for generations to come. They call it ecomagination and it's about smart, resourceful-and sometimes unexpected-solutions to our customers' everyday challenges.

"Ecomagination" is an example of an internal certification program. They press all products up against internally created standards for environmental impact and sound business practices.

GE's ecomagination products are evaluated for their ability to significantly and measurably improve the customer's environmental and operating performance. The multi-tiered review process is concluded with an independent, third party audit to ensure accuracy and thorough documentation of technological performance.

Ecomagination is GE's commitment to address challenges such as the need for cleaner, more efficient sources of energy, reduced emissions and abundant sources of clean water. Under ecomagination, GE will invest $1.5 billion annually in research in cleaner technologies by 2010.

Through its ecomagination program, GE has committed to help its customers meet their environmental challenges while reducing its own greenhouse gas emissions. GE has pledged to more than double its investment in the development of cleaner energy technologies, from $700 million to $1.5 billion by 2010, reduce its greenhouse gas emissions one percent by 2012, reduce the intensity of its greenhouse gas emissions 30 percent by 2008, and improve the company’s energy efficiency 30 percent by the end of 2012.
