Naturemade Star

naturemade is the Swiss quality label for energy from 100% renewable sources

Certification is available at two levels – naturemade star and naturemade basic

The quality labels naturemade star: 100% eco-energy and naturemade basic: 100% renewable energy, are awarded for plants producing renewable energy (electricity, heat/cooling and biomethane)

A certification is also available for the supply of energy from these plants to end consumers

The naturemade guidelines must be fulfilled for the Association for Environmentally Sound Energy (VUE) to grant certification

Added value by the naturmade quality scheme

The certification brings credibility through broad support from environmental and consumer organisations and the energy sector

Additional added environmental value:

  • Continual improvement of internal environmental performance through the implementation of the mandatory environmental management system
  • Guaranteed highest environmental standards regarding the protection of bodies of water and the species for which they provide habitats through naturemade star hydropower certification; Europe-wide best performance standard
  • Environmental improvements around plants through dedicated power plant funds ((mit Fonds verlinken)) of naturemade star-certified hydroelectric power plants

Added value for producers:

  • Credible evidence of climate-friendly, green energy generation
  • Quantifiable, added renewable and environmental value through energy balance reviews

naturemade star for Environmentally Friendly Production

The naturemade star quality label is awarded for energy generated through particularly environmentally friendly processes

naturemade star eco-energy comes from 100% renewable sources such as water, sun, biomass and wind, and the label certifies that further stringent, comprehensive environmental conditions are met

Certification of energy generation under the naturemade star label takes the natural environment, i.e. the plant and animal species living around power plants, into particular account. This is especially important as the ever increasing use of renewable sources of energy impacts on habitats and thus biodiversity
