News Release

NEIA engaging its membership to establish its priorities in pursuing growth for Newfoundland and Labrador’s clean technology and environmental services sector

For Immediate Release
September 3, 2019

(ST. JOHN’S, NL) – The Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) is engaging its membership in the months ahead to identify the association’s sector growth priorities.

“The time is now for NEIA to zero in on a number of key priorities with respect to supporting business entrepreneurship, innovation, and acceleration in clean technology and environmental services,” says Kieran Hanley, NEIA’s Executive Director.

Noting that a series of public/private strategies relating to the province’s key industries have been developed and published within the past 24 months, Hanley says that there is a wealth of information readily available that can be drawn upon to inform strategy.

“From oil and gas, to forestry, to mining, to aquaculture, to technology – we have an excellent sense as to where these industries are going and what clean technologies can be developed and applied to fuel their growth.” Hanley says this is in addition to federal and provincial commitments around climate change and clean growth, and major investments into the ecosystem including the creation of Canada’s Oceans Supercluster.

“In the weeks and months ahead, as we analyze all the information available to us, we will be consulting with our members on our findings and for advice on how to move forward.” Hanley says this process will be instrumental in NEIA’s engagement with its partners and ecosystem stakeholders in the pursuit of identified priorities.

“There is enormous global momentum and demand relating to clean growth, and this is a trend that is only going to intensify as time goes on,” says Hanley. “From our sector’s perspective, we need to identify where Newfoundland and Labrador can make the greatest contributions to this trend, and what we can do as an association to support that.”

Hanley says members should keep an eye to NEIA’s newsletter for surveys, and on their inboxes for direct communications. Interested members can contact NEIA directly with their ideas at www.neia.org/contact.

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.
