NEIA pleased with climate change challenge program announcement

For Immediate Release
March 15, 2019

ST. JOHN’S, NL: The Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) is pleased with the announcement of a provincial Climate Change Challenge Program.

Through a joint funding arrangement between the Federal and Provincial Governments, businesses, municipalities, and others can access funding to undertake projects that result in measurable greenhouse gas reductions.

“When new costs are applied to business operations in the form of carbon pricing, it is important that financial mechanisms are in place to help the private sector transition to a lower-carbon economy,” said Kieran Hanley, NEIA’s Executive Director. “This program is a positive step in addressing this need, and we commend the federal and provincial governments for their work in its establishment.”

“We look forward to working with our members and partners to identify and pursue projects that not only reduce GHG emissions, but also help grow the province’s environmental sector and green economy,” said Hanley, noting that NEIA’s membership provides a variety of products and services that can assist project proponents in their efforts.
