Two Versions of the ACORE Logo
The ACORE logo was created to promote ACORE and its member companies. The logo's eight intersecting rings represent the various member constituencies and are meant to symbolize the inherent interdependent nature of these as we work to build a successful renewable energy industry.
Currently there are two different versions of the logo: one for ACORE members to signify their membership status, and the other for ACORE general corporate branding, for use in our documentation and by our approved event partners, qualified members of the press, and others we may permit to display it.
ACORE Logo Use for Members
The member logo has been designed for use by member companies to promote their membership in ACORE. It is distinct from the ACORE Corporate logo in that it displays the word "MEMBER" beneath the logo's rings.
