GreenPro is a Green Product Certification developed by the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) and is aimed at helping consumers make informed choices. It is a seal of guarantee that the product bearing the GreenPro label is environmentally more sustainable throughout its life cycle and empowers end users with product sustainability information and steer them towards purchasing of sustainable products.

GreenPro assesses ‘how green a product is’ based on a holistic “Life cycle” based approach and awards the Ecolabel, as well as proposing next steps to achieve excellence in environmental performance over time. The Ecolabel encourages the product manufacturers to implement green measures in the following stages of the life cycle of a product.

  • Raw Materials
  • Manufacturing Process
  • Product Performance during use
  • Recycling / Disposal

The GreenPro Ecolabel is valid for 2 years from the date of award of Ecolabel for a product / product range. At the end of the validity period, the manufacturer has to renew the ecolabel by submitting the product performance related documents as per the relevant GreenPro standard.

GreenPro Ecolabel is accredited by Global Ecolabelling Network (GEN) through GENICES – GEN’s Internationally Coordinated Ecolabelling System. In contrast to arbitrary "green" symbols or claims made by providers, GEN members offer credible labels certified by an impartial third party for products or services that have been independently determined to meet transparent environmental leadership criteria based on life cycle considerations.

A GEN member ecolabel on a product or service means it is certified against a science-based standard. Requirements and product categories can differ but all standards address multiple environmental and health issues which can include toxicity, air quality, energy and water use, recyclability, use of natural resources, and other areas of concern.
