what if there was a clean Bitcoin initiative/organization that certified miners that mine with clean energy by some sig/cert in the coinbase. environmentally minded could purchase from those miners directly at a premium to incentivize clean energy consumption?

Would the economics of this work out? Fungibility concerns? How would you ensure that the sig is generated only by the hardware that was certified? hsm? Even with fraud concerns, might still be good PR-wise for people who aren’t buying because of energy concerns.
