Green Rating Programme


Paper Through Time

 The business of paper manufacturing has been an environmentalist’s nightmare. CSE had rated this industry's performance twice (in 1999 and 2004) and found them wanting on many counts. We continue to track India’s large scale pulp and paper industry. Our 2014 report, published in the form of a fact sheet, concludes the industry has made creditable improvements on several fronts, but it still has a long way to go.

Scientists discover green way to produce steel

Closer scrutiny by NGO Centre for Science and Environment, however, shows the process is not quite as CO2 emission-free as claimed

Early in May, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) announced the discovery of a new method of producing steel that is free of CO2 emissions. The process, known as molten oxide electrolysis (MOE), was initially employed to generate oxygen. The product generated was oxygen and, astonishingly, steel.

BEST AVAILABLE TECHNIQUES for Indian Iron and Steel Sector

This document briefly lists the best available techniques (BAT) for design, technology and operational performance of the Indian Iron and Steel sector. For each technique under different iron and steel manufacturing processes, the Indian best practice and the global best practice has been presented. The Indian best practice figures represent the values observed from the Centre for Science and Environment’s Green Rating Project (GRP) study of the sector in India for the year 2009-10.

Caustic- Chlorine Sector: Rating Scorecard

The caustic-chlorine companies were rated on more than 150 environmental indicators, encompassing environmental performance from their cradle-to-grave by Green Rating Project (GRP).


The second report card

The Indian pulp and paper sector achieves an overall score of 29.1 per cent. It gets the Two Leaves Award for the environmental performance of its life cycle – from sourcing of raw material, to processing of the product and to disposal of effluents. In addition, the Green Rating Project (GRP) has assessed the corporate policy and management systems of each company and has given cognisance to the perceptions of local communities who live around each factory.
