Indonesia and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) have been working together since 1980 with the Ministry of Industry as the National Focal Point. The latest collaboration between UNIDO and the Ministry of Industry is the Global Eco-Industrial Park Programme (GEIPP) which is aimed to develop industrial parks through an environmental approach.
UNIDO conducted the research (2018-2020) of 50 industrial parks in 8 developing countries (Indonesia, Colombia, Egypt, Nigeria, Peru, South Africa, Ukraine, and Vietnam) towards performance indicators defined in the International Framework for environmentally friendly industrial park or Eco-Industrial Parks (EIP).
According to the Ministry of Industry Authority, Dody Widodo (2020), "The EIP concept is an initial step towards the Smart Industrial Park which become the Ministry of Industry's priority program to develop a digital technology-based and environmentally friendly industrial parks. Thus, it will increase the industrial efficiency and competitiveness in the region”.

The assessment over 50 industrial parks from 8 countries, 11 of them are in Indonesia. Further data extraction of Indonesia, depicts that Suryacipta records the highest score, not only in Indonesia but also among the 50 industrial parks.
