NEIA leads mission to United Kingdom to learn about clean technology opportunities

For Immediate Release
June 6, 2018

ST. JOHN’s (NL) – The Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) led a delegation of Atlantic Canadian firms last month to the United Kingdom to learn about clean technology opportunities – a mission that included site tours, business-to-business meetings, and participation in the international All-Energy conference.

“This mission helped Atlantic Canadian firms to explore new export markets for their products and services, in a region the has great promise for Canadian business,” said Abbie Lacey, NEIA’s Manager of International Business Development, referencing the recent Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement (CETA). Lacey noted that firms were assisted in this regard with matchmaking services provided by in-market consultants.

“This mission also provided firms with an opportunity to learn more about clean technology opportunities relating to energy,” said Lacey. “Collectively, through a number of site-tours throughout the UK and participation in the renowned All-Energy Conference in Glasgow, our delegates gained insight on the business development possibilities associated with the application of clean technology in energy sectors – experience that could only be gained by being introduced to them first-hand in-market.”

The mission was supported by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) and the four Atlantic provincial governments through the Atlantic Trade and Investment Growth Strategy (ATIGS).

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 http://www.neia.org.
