WindMade

WindMade logo

Windmade™ is a consumer label identifying products and companies using wind energy. WindMade™ is dedicated to increasing corporate investments in wind power by informing consumers about companies’ use of wind energy, and increasing demand for products that embrace this clean and renewable energy source.

To use the WindMade label for their communications or products, WindMade members have to undergo a certification process to verify their wind energy procurement. The aim is to drive the development of new wind power plants, over and above what would be developed anyway.

Windmade is managed by an independent non-profit, and is supported by a consortium including WWF, the UN Global Compact, the Global Wind Energy Council, the LEGO Group, Vestas Wind Systems, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Bloomberg.
