Importance of Eco-industrial Parks

Industrial parks cluster industrial businesses in a dedicated location to achieve efficiencies and take advantage of collaborative opportunities. But concentrating economic activity in one area runs the risk of also concentrating negative environmental and social impacts, such as pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, and poor labor standards.

The EIP framework describes the minimum expectations for eco-industrial centers across four categories:

  • Park management performance
  • Environmental performance
  • Social performance
  • Economic performance

Local communities embracing the concept of Eco-industrial park are looking for some additional benefits for all the interested parties, both public and private: higher economic efficiency, generation of additional revenues through positive regulations at the community level, the creation of jobs, solving the conflict between economy and environment, diminishing the demand on the county infrastructure, decreasing the effects of pollution, using energy from regenerating sources and replacement materials. 

 

Communities and enterprises creating Eco-industrial parks will have common grounds for industrial development, which is much more competitive, more efficient and much cleaner than traditional industrial parks.
