Supported by GIZ, Greening the Industry Roadmap is an offshoot project of the Promotion of Green Economic Development (ProGED), worth PhP 2.1-million. It aims to integrate Green Economic Development (GED) in the industry sector policies of the Philippines.
It seeks to propel climate-smart, environment-friendly, and globally-competitive industries, particularly in these six manufacturing sectors of the Philippines: Automotive Manufacturers, Auto Parts Industry, Pulp and Paper Industry, Plastic Industry, Housing Industry, and Furniture Industry.
In cooperation with other government entities, DTI is tasked to contribute to setting framework conditions and to building up capacities that support a paradigm shift towards an innovation process that results in competitiveness, good environmental performance, climate change resilience, and job creation.
