The Green Industry Platform is a global high-level, multi-stakeholder partnership intended to act as a forum to catalyze, mobilize and mainstream action on Green Industry around the world. It provides a framework to bring together governmental, business and civil society leaders to secure concrete commitments and mobilize action in support of the Green Industry agenda.
