Greenbelt: A regulation or an opportunity


In India, there is no exclusive green belt regulation/policy. However, under the purview of other regulations such as Environmental Guidelines for Industries, Environment Management Plan, National Forest Policy, Forest Conservation Act, etc; certain percentage of land designated for green belts is recommended for different categories of industrial projects.

Maintaining and restoring the natural environment through plantation along the industrial and urban areas will play a fundamental role in sustaining our collective future.
A Strategically planned and developed greenbelt around the industrial and urban areas will play key role in controlling pollutants emitted from the industry with other benefits like carbon sequestration, ambient temperature reduction and soil stabilization.
