NEIA congratulates the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador on the release of its Climate Change Action Plan

Industry ready to respond to environmental challenges, opportunities

For Immediate Release
March 1, 2019

CORNER BROOK, NL: The Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) is congratulating the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador on the release of its Climate Change Action Plan.

“It is important that government explicitly outlines its climate change priorities, as it has done today,” said Kieran Hanley, NEIA’s Executive Director. “Knowing the environmental challenges and opportunities that the province is focusing on… allows the private sector to respond in-kind.”

Hanley says that NEIA’s membership provides a variety of products and services that can assist the province in adapting to and mitigating the effects of climate change. “This week NEIA released its Clean Technology and Environmental Services Directory,” said Hanley. “This resource will help both the public and private sectors engage local businesses that can facilitate greenhouse gas reductions and clean growth.” The directory can be accessed at www.CleanTechNL.ca.

NEIA members were very engaged in the development of the climate change action plan, noted Hanley. “NEIA launched an industry engagement campaign in 2016, which culminated in a comprehensive series of recommendations for the provincial government to consider,” said Hanley.

“We know that years of hard work by our public sector has gone in to this plan; NEIA looks forward to studying the result, and is eagerly anticipating more information on programming available to help businesses thrive in the lower-carbon economy.”
