RSG Responsibly-Sourced Gas (RSG): What is it, and why does it matter?
Join us on October 22, for NWGA’s monthly webinar to learn more about Responsibly Sourced Gas (RSG), the third party certification process for RSG, and why it is coming to the forefront of natural gas conversations. The folks from International Environmental Standards (IES), owners of the TrustWell certification, will be our presenters. TrustWell was the certification process used in 100% of all Responsibly Sourced Gas deals in the US.
