    Since the launch of UNIDO’s Green Industry Platform at Rio+20 in June, we have never heard anything more about it. What happened?

    Since the Rio launch, the initiative’s co-convenors – UNIDO and UNEP – have been working closely together to put in place the Green Industry Platform’s operational framework. Additionally, deliberations have been under way regarding the composition of the Platform’s Advisory Board, which will help steer the activities of the Platform. This selection process is now nearing completion and we expect to announce the Advisory Board in the next weeks.

    The priority areas for projects on the ground have now also been determined and include: resource efficiency, water optimization, industrial energy efficiency and chemicals management. These areas will be explored in greater detail and possibly expanded through a participative process involving the Platform’s diverse and growing membership.

    A new interactive website for the Green Industry Platform is currently being designed and will soon be accessible at http://www.greenindustryplatform.org. All news regarding the Platform will of course be made available there as it breaks.
