This UNIDO Eco-Industrial Parks (EIP) training is designed to create a common understanding of eco-industrial parks, aligned with the International Framework for Eco-Industrial Parks developed by UNIDO, GIZ and the World Bank. In taking this course, participants will learn about key resources and tools available to support the identification, development, and implementation of EIP approaches in industrial parks in order to understand and learn about the opportunities, challenges and success factors for the mainstreaming of EIPs in their countries.
This tool is to assist international development agencies and national partners with providing technical support to policymakers on EIP policy planning and development. It can be used as a practical tool to inform and guide the project team throughout the different stages of the policy development process in relation to EIP.
This tool is to support the identification of industrial symbiosis opportunities (by-product and waste exchanges) between companies. It can be used in existing industrial parks (brownfields) to provide stakeholders with an indication of the symbiosis opportunities related to companies operating in the park. Alternatively, the tool can be used for new industrial parks (greenfields) to highlight possible industrial symbiosis between companies located in the park, and thereby assist in the planning of infrastructures and utilities to enable these connections.
This tool is to monitor and report the resource savings and results of RECP assessments undertaken with companies in industrial parks. The tool provides a standardized method to calculate and monitor the economic, environmental and social benefits of RECP opportunities identified and implemented.
This tool is to strengthen and advance the services provided by park management to tenant companies, thereby increase "value for money" provided by park management to tenant companies and securing/expanding revenues of park management entity. The tool assists industrial park management entities and tenant companies with reviewing, prioritizing, scoping, and action planning of fit-for-purpose and added-value services to their park and tenant companies.
This tool is to assist in the sustainable and integrated design and operation of industrial parks from an economic, environmental and community perspective by providing a systemic approach to incorporate demand-driven eco-industrial park opportunities into the concept planning of greenfield parks and brownfield parks.
This Master Plan EIP Review Tool is to guide the sustainability review of existing Master Plans of industrial parks, based on eco-industrial parks concepts and the International Framework for Eco-Industrial Parks (UNIDO, WBG, GIZ), and thereby provide concrete suggestions for strengthening Master Plans.
