November 2011 - Fifteen global companies announced their commitment to become certified under the new WindMade consumer label at a global launch event in New York, hosted by WindMade and the UN Global Compact. Companies committing to use the WindMade label include Motorola Mobility, Deutsche Bank, Bloomberg, Method, Beckton, Dickinson & Co., Better Place, Widex, Droga5, G24 Innovations, Engraw, RenewAire, TTTech, Vestas Wind Systems, PwC DK, and LEGO Group.
The WindMade label allows participating companies to communicate the share of wind power and other renewable energy sources as part of their overall power consumption. Companies using the label must source a minimum of 25 percent of their electricity use from wind power. The wind energy share can be procured through a company-owned wind generation facility, long-term wind power purchase agreement, or the purchase of renewable energy certificates approved by WindMade.
