Green Industry Platform

UNIDO Launches the Green Industry Platform at Rio+20

The Green Industry Platform is a global high-level multi-stakeholder partnership intended to act as a forum for catalysing, mobilizing and mainstreaming action on Green Industry around the world. It provides a framework for bringing together governmental, business and civil society leaders to secure concrete commitments and mobilize action in support of the Green Industry agenda, i.e. greening the manufacturing process and creating green industries for production of goods and services for domestic use or export.

By encouraging the more efficient use of energy and raw materials in manufacturing processes and services, the Platform will contribute both to cleaner and more competitive  industrial development, and will help reduce pollution and reliance on unsustainable use of natural resources.

Business, governments and civil society organizations are invited to review and sign the Green Industry Platform's Statement of Support in order to indicate their willingness to become a member of the Platform.

The benefits and terms of Platform membership are described in the "Introducing the Green Industry Platform" document on this site.

To join the Platform, please send a brief email, attaching a signed copy of the Statement of Support, to
