NEIA provides clean growth lens to forestry, manufacturing industries in Corner Brook

Forestry Innovation Day in Corner Brook, NL

For Immediate Release
March 5, 2018

CORNER BROOK, NL – The Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) was in Corner Brook last week to talk about clean growth opportunities and supports relating to the local manufacturing and forestry industries.

On Tuesday, NEIA’s Executive Director Kieran Hanley presented at the Manufacturing Insights: Green Sustainability for Profit session held by the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME). “The CME talked about the seven forms of green waste found within the sector – energy, water, materials, garbage, transportation, emissions, and biodiversity,” said Hanley. “On behalf of our membership, I was able to provide participants with insight on the local companies that can provide local clean technology and environmental solutions.”

On Wednesday as part of Forestry Innovation Day, NEIA hosted the Bio-Economy Workshop which explored clean growth opportunities within Newfoundland and Labrador’s forestry industry. “There are a number of exciting opportunities within the forestry industry that have potential both from an economic and clean growth perspective,” said Hanley. “With the emergence of the NL Forestry Industry Association, as a community of stakeholders we are becoming well-positioned to pursue these opportunities in partnership.”

Foresty Innovation Day was presented by NEIA in partnership with the Canadian Woodlands Forum, the Newfoundland and Labrador Forestry Industry Association, FPInnovations, and Resource Innovations. More information on the event can be found here.

At both events, Hanley had the opportunity to promote the capabilities of NEIA’s membership, and help stakeholders explore possible funding and support mechanisms available to the to help address needs and pursue initiatives.

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.
