NEIA creates funding portal for Newfoundland and Labrador firms pursuing clean growth

For Immediate Release
March 5, 2018

ST. JOHN’S, NL – The Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) has created a funding portal for firms in the province pursuing clean technology development and adoption, and clean growth.

“At the present time, there are significant supports for firms in Newfoundland and Labrador to pursue clean economic growth,” said Kieran Hanley, NEIA’s Executive Director. “Whether it be the adoption of existing clean technology to improve productivity and competitiveness, the development of new clean technology to be applied worldwide, or the pursuit of better environmental outcomes – there are funds and supports that have emerged that can be used towards these initiatives.”

Hanley said that the Federal government’s commitment to a lower-carbon economy has resulted in a wide variety of mechanisms from Federal departments, crown corporations, and even third-party providers – a framework that can be challenging to navigate. “With this portal we aim to provide the business community with a useful tool to help them narrow in on and identify the appropriate supports to help address their needs or bolster their initiatives.”

The tool is specific to the Newfoundland and Labrador business ecosystem. “Our staff has worked hard to include all of the clean growth-specific supports that NEIA is aware of,” said Hanley, adding that the portal is fluid and that any supports that were missed can easily be added. “We encourage all of our partners to contact us with any new information that they may have so that our list is accurate as possible.”

Hanley says NEIA is able to help firms identify appropriate supports for their clean growth initiatives. “The business ecosystem for clean growth is complex, and in some cases time-sensitive. Please contact us to tell us about your plans so that we can help you navigate through the programming.”

NEIA is a not-for-profit association of businesses that promotes the development of clean technology and the growth of the green economy in Newfoundland and Labrador. NEIA has over 200 members. More information can be found at www.neia.org.
