The Greening of Industry Network connects people from various professional and geographical backgrounds to jointly work on the challenge of industrial transformation. The network is a space to work in, an open forum for debate, mutual learning, and creating knowledge and action agendas. The Network is an international association open to all who are interested in the sustainability challenge, the intertwined issues of industry, environment and society.

We work in research, education, business, civil society organizations, consultancies and government, representing over 50 countries. For our second decade, we dissolved the Advisory Board and Action Planning Committee and formed the GIN Coordinating team which has evolved through the last two decades.

We want to thank all the members of former boards, working groups for their volunteer service in guiding the Greening of Industry Network. In 2022, we convened a new internal structure that consists of The GIN Founders team, the GIN Ambassadors and the GIN Coordinating team. This new structure launched the forth decade of the Greening of Industry Network.


Since 1991 the Greening of Industry Network has engaged researchers, business leaders, activists and policy makers from more than 50 countries to respond to the challenge of sustainable development.
