NEIA releases video series exploring opportunities for clean technology in the growth of Atlantic Canada’s blue economy

For Immediate Release
September 2, 2021

(ST. JOHN’S, NL) – The Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) has produced and released an information series that explores clean growth opportunities related to oceans industries in Atlantic Canada.

“Conversations around concepts like sustainable development, the energy transition, net zero, decarbonization, etc. are intensifying globally at a rapid rate,” says Kieran Hanley, NEIA’s Executive Director. “Atlantic Canada’s oceans industries – which are vitally important to the region’s economy – operate in international markets and as such need to be prepared to thrive in these changing conditions.”

Hanley says that the Offshore Cleantech Information Series aims to provide stakeholders in Atlantic Canada with the necessary insights to understand how these increasing environmental pressures will affect their industries, and where new opportunities for growth and innovation might lie. “We have produced 16 presentations and over 10 hours of content presented by subject matter experts on topics ranging from the fishery to offshore oil and gas to marine renewables,” says Hanley. “We believe this is a meaningful contribution towards advancing Atlantic Canada’s blue economy.”

The series also highlights firms from Atlantic Canada that are already engaged internationally, successfully exporting their clean technologies and environmental services throughout the world. “Investments and decisions are increasingly being made worldwide based on environmental performance indicators,” says Hanley, “and the truth is we have many local firms that have been very successful on the global stage in that regard.”

The Offshore Cleantech Information Series was produced by NEIA in partnership with the Newfoundland and Labrador Oil and Gas Industries Association (Noia), the Maritimes Energy Association, and Marine Renewables Canada. The series can be accessed for free via NEIA’s new professional development portal: https://neia.myvirtualcampus.co/product/offshore-cleantech-information-series/.

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 https://neia.org.
