Gujarat Cleaner Production Centre (GCPC) is an Environmental Information System (ENVIS) Centre working on Cleaner Production and Technology since year 2003 under Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India.

Gujarat has achieved an impressive industrial development since its inception as a state in 1960. The industrial sector at present comprises of huge number of Micro, Small, Medium and Large scale of industries. The strengths of the state lies in its Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) as it is also man driven which creates a huge employment opportunities.

The industrialization brought economic prosperity to the state, but also resulted in the deterioration of environment. It was realized that taking reactive steps was not a proper answer to pollution control, but there is a need of ‘Proactive’ step (Cleaner Production) which can prevent the generation of pollutants; rather than treating the generated waste at the End-of-pipe.

The concept of Cleaner Production is very simple-prevention is better than cure, a stitch in time save nine. The concept was developed in 1992 during the preparation of the Rio Summit as a programme of UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme) and UNIDO (United Nations Industrial Development Organization) to reduce environmental impact of the industry. Cleaner Production can reduce environmental impact of the industry and reduces operating costs, leads to worker’s health and safety. It is the improvement in the operational process to make more efficient use of inputs such as raw materials, water and energy along the company’s value chain. To make industrial growth sustainable it is very important to achieve growth with ecological sustainability; and that’s where cleaner production plays a major role.

Objective:

The programme focuses more towards promoting the concept of cleaner production to industries and to masses. It is tailored to spread awareness about the concept; benefits of implementing Cleaner Production and environmental practices in different industries and industrial sectors. The objective of the programme is to change mindsets and to showcase exemplary work done by different industries in the field of Cleaner Production and Clean Technology to the other industries.

Activities:

The promotion in the industries; includes the introduction to the cleaner production concept; tools; methodologies; by the experts and showcasing few successful implemented case studies in various industrial sectors including its results achieved by the industries in form of conservation of resources, process improvement, improvement in quality of product etc. The promotion programme also creates awareness about the incentives provided by the state government on implementation of cleaner production and clean technologies. The promotion is all about sharing the knowledge and information about cleaner production to the audience.
