CII–Sohrabji Godrej Green Business Centre, through an extensive stakeholder consultation and interaction with experts, has developed the “GreenCo Green Company Rating System” to evaluate how green is a company. This first of its kind in the world rating system, is a holistic mechanism to assess and analyze the company’s performance on the green front. It is a framework to measure and monitor the environmental impact of a company’s activities or operations. The GreenCo Rating System apart from assessing the companies also defines a path for continuous ecological improvement and guided phase growth. The GreenCo Rating System has been receiving an excellent response from the Indian industry. As of June 2015, 48 companies are GreenCo Rated and more than 140 companies are at various levels of execution under the rating system.
UNIDO, under its global RECP Programme, along with CII – Godrej GBC is carrying out a project entitled “Pilot application of innovative assessment and monitoring methods for resource efficient and cleaner production in selected manufacturing sectors in India”. The aim of the programme is to develop, trial and promote RECP approaches particularly in small and medium sized enterprises in developing and emerging economies. The GreenCo Rating System is selected as an innovative assessment and monitoring method, and as a part of the project, has intended to bring out case studies of GreenCo Rated Companies. Every case study in this booklet broadly covers a brief profile of the company, the company’s GreenCo journey, initiatives taken by the companies across various GreenCo parameters and the tangible and intangible benefits achieved. This compilation is intended for industries to learn from each other and replicate wherever possible.
The GreenCo Case Study Booklet was released during the 4th edition of the GreenCo Summit 2015 organised by Confederation of Indian Industry on 25 June, 2015 at Mumbai.
