Green Industry combines the ideas of industrial development and growth with sustainability and environmental protection. UNIDO’s Green Industry Initiative and Green Industry Platform support developing countries in their efforts towards Green Industry by capacity building and awareness raising. This in turn generates safe and green jobs and facilitates optimisation and innovation (see a, b, c).
By contributing to both economic viability and environmental protection, Chemical Leasing contributes importantly to the development of a green chemical industry. In addition, the service aspect of Chemical Leasing underpins its potential to generate jobs, because services are people-driven and enhanced by the exchange of know-how. Chemical Leasing therefore generates a demand for jobs with increased application of know-how.
