CII – Sohrabji Godrej Green Business Centre or The Green Business Centre is located in Hyderabad, India. It won an internationally acclaimed award by the United States Green Building Council as the most environmentally advanced building in the world.

It is the "Centre of Excellence" of the Confederation of Indian Industry for Energy Efficiency, Green Buildings , Renewable Energy, Water, Environment & Recycling and Climate Change activities in India.

CII - Sohrabji Godrej Green Business Centre was inaugurated by the then President of India A P J Abdul Kalam, on July 14, 2004.

The centre is located on an area of 5 acres (20,000 m²). It is near HITEC City, Hyderabad, and the concept was launched during the then U.S. President Bill Clinton's visit to the city in March 2000.

The Green Institute entered into a strategic partnership with the Confederation of Indian Industries to establish the Green Business Centre (GBC) at Hyderabad for promoting "Green Activities" in India. The GBC has become the basis of an ongoing partnership with the Phillips Eco-Enterprise Center (PEEC), a project of the Green Institute.
