Green rating of industries

  1. 1. Green Rating Of Industries Presented by: Kuntal Bhoir – 55 Pranjali Bhonde – 56 Anamika A. Kumar – 107 Sireesha Deokar – Habeeb Sheikh – 113
  2. 2. • Industrial pollution load grew 4 times (1975-1995)
  3. 3. • Centre of Science • Green Rating Project and Environment (GRP) (CSE)
  4. 4. Green Rating Project (GRP) • GRP was started as a civil society initiative to develop an alternative form of governance to control industrial pollution in India. • The project was conceptualized in wide consultation with economic experts, industry experts and NGOs. • Priority was given to developing a strategy that would motivate the industry to catalyze environmental improvements of their own accord. Objective: “to guide the Indian Industries towards improving the environmental impacts of industries”
  5. 5. How did CSE implement GRP? • Carrot and stick approach – – non-participating company was penalized and the voluntary participants were given a pat on their back. – The response was tremendous with voluntary participation of 90 per cent of industry members in all 3 sectors, pulp and paper sector, the automobile sector and the chlor-alkali sector. – To ensure success of the project, the organisation developed an alternate database of environmental information about industries. The organisation also decided to rate companies within the same sector so as to motivate companies that were successful in their fields to join the project and score over their competitors. – GRP involved eminent and highly respected representatives from industry, civil society and the government to ensure high credibility, which would in turn motivate powerful companies to participate. – GRP also made the results of the in public thus encouraging more companies to participate.
  6. 6. Impact of GRP • GRP doesn’t stop at rating but further aims to the environmental impacts of industry in India, and to guide industry to move towards this goal. • At the end of the process,the GRP lays down clear guidelines for the industry to improve its environmental performance.
  7. 7. Drawbacks in the existing system • Little knowledge about the environmental performance of companies. The government does not maintain a centralized database and the existing data is not easily available to the public. • Since 1964, several environmental laws have been enacted and numerous institutions have been set up to implement the objectives of these laws. However, these laws have failed to reduce industrial pollution in India. • Changing corporate diktats demand good environmental performance. • Lack of transparency in the Indian industry – good and bad environmental performance goes unnoticed.
  8. 8. GRP – An aid to the drawbacks • GRP includes compilation of comprehensive database from scratch, making it available to the public and other key stakeholders with an accepted reference by the industry and State Pollution Control Boards. • GRP brings together the key constituents in monitoring the environmental performance of industry and paves the way for new guidelines or an alternate integrated form of governance. • Environmental risk liability is increasingly coming under investor scrutiny. There is a show of goodwill and loyalty by customers to companies who are environmentally conscious. As GRP is a market oriented monitoring framework, it helps the investor ascertain the potential liability of a company before investing. • Many progressive firms have adopted state-of-the-art technologies for pollution reduction but have not received the public recognition for their good work. Likewise, industrial segments that are lagging behind in environmental performance do not feel any public pressure to improve. GRP believes that by projecting a transparent picture of the environmental performance, good companies will get the deserved support while the poor performers will be hauled up.
