CII has changed the industry’s nature of doing business and assists industries to do it in a sustainable way. This led to the birth of the GreenCo rating system. The “Platinum GreenCo” is the highest rating awarded by CII to recognize the most “Sustainable” models in the manufacturing and services sector.
