CII launches India-specific Green product certification
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.
