Power Watch India - - DESPATCHES NATIONAL -

CII re­cently launched ‘Green­Pro’ Green Prod­uct Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for In­dia. As part of this ini­tia­tive, CII has inked an MoU with Un­der­writ­ers Lab­o­ra­to­ries (UL), a global in­de­pen­dent safety science com­pany, ded­i­cated to pro­mot­ing safe liv­ing and work­ing en­vi­ron­ments. Green Pro Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion will help man­u­fac­tur­ers to po­si­tion their prod­ucts as green and ecofriendly. Thus far, in as­sess­ing green prod­ucts, the ex­tent of green was ad­dressed through dec­la­ra­tion from man­u­fac­tur­ers or la­belling from other coun­tries which in most of the cases does not suit the In­dian con­text and re­quire­ments. How­ever, with the launch of Green­Pro Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, green prod­ucts, equip­ment and tech­nolo­gies can be cer­ti­fied within the coun­try. CII es­ti­mates that the mar­ket po­ten­tial for cer­ti­fied green prod­ucts would be about USD 300 bil­lion by 2025.
