GGL was established in 2002 and is owned by the Green Gold Label Foundation. GGL is amongst the earliest biomass certification schemes. It has acquired a unique track record in the certification and tracking and tracing of sustainable biomass. Certification against GGL is done by independent, accredited third party certification bodies. GGL certification covers the complete supply chain from production, processing, transport to final use for bioenergy and biobased applications. The scope includes woody, agri-residue and waste wood biomass, as well as bioliquids.

Green Gold Label primaliry focuses on two market segments:

– Biomass for the production of biobased chemicals and other products
– Biomass for electricity and heat production.
