The green rating project is not a theoretical exercise which stops at rating companies. The goal of the project is to improve the environmental impacts of industry in India
, and to guide industry to move towards this goal. Therefore, at the end of each rating process, the green rating project (GRP) lays down clear guidelines for the industry to improve its environmental performance. Experience in all the three rating processes has shown that the companies rated have taken initiatives to improve their environmental performance along the guidelines laid down by GRP.
