A clean environment makes perfect business sense


The Green Rating Project (GRP) assesses, and makes public, the environmental performance of companies within a sector in India. It aims to reduce the impact of industrial activity on the environment.

It also aims to partner industrial sectors and embed sound environmental management principles into their production practices. It is a programme of the New Delhi-based non-profit Centre for Science and Environment. Since its inception in 1997, GRP has rated the following sectors: paper, automobile, chlor-alkali, cement and iron & steel.

Note: The project is supported by UNDP and the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests. It does not receive any financial support from any industry.
