naturemade-certified energy protects the climate and nature

naturemade is the credible quality seal for renewable and green energy, resource efficiency and energy neutrality at the national and international level. The quality of the naturemade energy supply mix is superior to that of the average supply mix in Switzerland.  

naturemade only contains renewable energy and therefore protects the climate. naturemade star power plants are additionally subject to the most stringent environmental criteria and therefore protect both the climate and nature. The various qualities available under the quality seal are differentiated by means of a system of four dots. These represent incremental increases in the naturemade star energy content, which is subject to the most stringent environmental requirements. Four dots in the logo mark the highest quality level, representing 100% naturemade star content. naturemade ensures the gradual greening of the energy system in Switzerland.

naturemade: proof of origin plus more

naturemade is available at two quality levels:


naturemade = 100% renewable + climate-friendly

“naturemade” stands for climate-friendly energy from 100% renewable sources, with mainly large hydroelectric power plants and waste incineration plants in Switzerland being certified under this label. The generation of green electricity is promoted via minimum requirements for naturemade electricity products.


naturemade star = 100% renewable + climate-friendly + nature-friendly = green

“naturemade star” is awarded for green energy, i.e. energy generation that is particularly climate- and nature-friendly. Green naturemade star energy also comes from 100% renewable sources such as water, sun, biomass and wind, and the label additionally certifies that stringent, comprehensive environmental requirements are met. Energy generation in accordance with this label is particularly gentle to the natural environment, i.e. the flora and fauna living around power plants. This is especially important as the ever-increasing use of renewable energy sources impacts on habitats and therefore biodiversity.

The minimum naturemade star contents required for the various quality levels of naturemade-certified electricity supplies are defined as follows:

  2022 2023 2024 2025 2026
10% 11% 12% 13% 14%
20% 21% 22% 23% 24%
40% 41% 42% 43% 44%
100% 100% 100% 100% 100%
