Green Industry Platform

The Green Industry Platform (GIP), jointly run by UNIDO and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), provides a framework that brings together more than 200 leaders from government, business and civil society around a set of common engagements in order to secure concrete commitments and mobilize action in pursuit of core green industry policies and practices. The Platform allows all stakeholders to share and profile best practices, promote research, innovation and deployment of green technologies, while raising awareness about the benefits of green industry.

Green Industry Conference

Green Industry Conferences (GICs) bring together world leaders and key actors to engage in a dynamic and critical debate on how to move from a linear economy to a circular economy, and to share best practices and best policy strategies for the application of green industry. The first Green Industry Conference was held in Manila, Philippines in 2009, which resulted in the signing of the Manila Declaration by representatives of Asian countries. In 2011, the second Green Industry Conference took place in Tokyo, Japan and was attended by some 300 participants. The most recent Conference took place in Guangzhou, China in 2013, in which over 80 speakers gave substantial presentations. The next Green Industry Conference will take place from 28 to 30 June 2016, in Ulsan, Republic of Korea.

Partnership for Action on Green Economy

The Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) draws on the expertise of ILO, UNDP, UNEP, UNIDO and UNITAR, to empower participating countries to develop comprehensive policies stimulating sustainable development and eradicating poverty through a transition to a green economy. The initiative is designed to support a sustainable and equitable transformation of the national economic structures of up to thirty countries by 2020. PAGE provides access to research, knowledge and tools, organizes policy dialogues with and between governments, and provides capacity-building and support for policy design and implementation. UNIDO’s contribution focuses on Green Industrial Policy advice and its implementation through industry engagement, industry-related training and building of public-private partnerships.
