New on-line tool to facilitate green technology patent searches

WIPO has launched an on-line tool that is linked to its International Patent Classification (IPC)
system to facilitate searches for patent information relating to environmentally sound
technologies (ESTs), as listed by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
(UNFCCC). The tool, the “IPC Green Inventory”, contains some 200 topics that are directly
relevant to ESTs, and each topic is linked with the most relevant IPC symbols.In addition to being linked to the IPC system, the IPC Green Inventory is hyperlinked to WIPO’s PATENTSCOPE® search service to automatically search and display all “green” international applications filed under the PCT.The IPC Green Inventory will help in identifying existing and emerging green technologies, as well as potential partners for further R&D and commercial exploitation. To access the IPC Green Inventory, and for further information on how to use it, see:
