Green Rating Programme


Green Rating Network

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 survey 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.
