The Green Hydrogen Oraganisation (GH2) set up as a not profit foundation under Swiss law. In addition to its office in Geneva it is present in London, Perth, and Sydney. In the fight to tackle a climate catastrophe, a range of clean technologies must be rapidly scaled to decarbonise different industries. Currently, there is no standard or certification to trade green hydrogen, no coordinated international effort to support the industry, and green hydrogen is a low priority amongst development finance institutions, despite green hydrogen’s enormous potential to stimulate development while reducing carbon emissions.
The GH2 has three priority areas:
- The Global Green Hydrogen Charter
- The Global Green Hydrogen Development Plan
- The Green Hydrogen CEO Roundtable

The Green Hydrogen Standard
The Green Hydrogen Organisation (GH2) launched the Green Hydrogen Standard at the Green Hydrogen Global Assembly & Exhibition in Barcelona in May 2022.
“The Standard provides certainty and transparency to investors and other stakeholders that green hydrogen is exactly that: hydrogen made with renewable electricity which conforms to the highest standards on emissions, ESG and the sustainable development goals.”
– Malcolm Turnbull, GH2 Chair
In the first global effort of its kind, green hydrogen projects that meet the Green Hydrogen Standard (“the standard”) will be licensed to use the label “GH2 Green Hydrogen” and will be eligible to obtain and trade GH2 certificates of origin for green hydrogen and derivatives such as green ammonia.
