GREEN RATING NETWORK is a countrywide network of volunteers of Centre for Science and Environment, New Delhi (CSE) which undertakes surveys and data collection on industries.
The volunteers are authorized representatives of CSE to do a short survey of the industries assigned to them and collect the required information. Being an important part of CSE’s Green Rating Project (GRP), their contribution helps to provide crucial plant level information.
GRP carries out the study of large industrial sectors in the country in order to analyze their environmental performances and encourage them to adopt better and environment friendly practices. As the scale of the work is significantly large, the cooperation and support of GRN plays a key role to the success of this widely acknowledged project.
GRN involves professionals, academicians, students, NGOs and other interested personnel who understand or wish to understand the specific industries. The volunteers are short-listed based on their qualifications, experience and proximity to the targeted industries.
What does CSE expect from GRN? CSE considers GRN an important part of the project, therefore, does not restrict them to simple data collection work. The members are expected to inspect plant operations, take photographs, provide in-depth reports on industry operations, interview community people, pollution control board officials and local media personnel. CSE provides the necessary supports to GRN member wherever required.
