Panaji: Goa State Pollution Control Board (GSPCB) signed two MoUs on Saturday at the closing of the 1st International Environment and Sustainability Summit Goa (IESSG) 2023. The MoUs will help industries in Goa get green ratings.The first MoU was signed for CII GreenCo rating, which is a voluntary rating system promoted by CII and is a first-of-its-kind system. GSPCB chairman Mahesh Patil said that the rating holistically evaluates how green a company is and suggests the way forward in pursuing environmental excellence.
“The rating guidelines cover energy, water, renewable energy, greenhouse gas mitigation, waste and material management, green supply chain, product stewardship, life-cycle assessment and innovation,” said Patil.
The second MoU was signed by the pollution control board with CII IGBC or Indian Green Building Council of the CII.
“The objective of this MoU is to promote as well as encourage voluntary adoption of IGBC ratings by industries in Goa,” said Patil. “The implementation of IGBC ratings will help industries in the faster adoption of best practices, efficient use of natural resources, reduction in waste and pollution and reduction in carbon emissions.” He added: “The initiative will help more industries become world-class in environmental management.”
This MoU, he said, will be a stepping stone to creating a green industry landscape and voluntarily raising the bar beyond compliance in environment management.
“As a result, it will facilitate Goa’s march towards a green economy and its emergence as a low-carbon state in the country,” Patil said.
A third MoU was signed with Teri School of Advanced Studies (Teri SAS), Delhi, to help GSPCB employees undertake research studies.
“The MoU was signed with the objective of fostering collaboration between the two organisations to promote academic-led strengthening of science-policy-practice interface, endeavouring to increase their cooperation in research and education,” said Patil. “The probable thematic areas are bio resources and biotechnology, business sustainability, energy and environment, national resources management, policy studies, water science and governance as well as legal studies.”
