Message From Member Secretary

The concept of Cleaner Production is very simple – Prevention is better than cure; a stitch in time saves nine. It is a preventive environmental strategy for waste minimization and environmental pollution. I feel Cleaner Production is all about positive mindsets. It is a ‘win-win’ strategy. It protects the environment, the consumer and the worker while improving industrial efficiency, profitability, and competitiveness. The key difference between pollution control and Cleaner Production is therefore one of timing. Pollution Control is an after-the-event, ‘react and treat’ approach while Cleaner Production is a forward looking, ‘anticipate and prevent’ philosophy. Cleaner Production does not deny growth; it merely insists that growth be ecologically sustainable. Cleaner Production helps reducing environmental pollution, waste minimization, raw material conservation and leads to sustainable industrial development. Gujarat Cleaner Production Centre is promoting the application of Cleaner Production conducting cleaner production promotional programmes in various industrial estates and academic institutions.

We’re Inspired by the Commitment of Our Well Wishers.
