Enhancing Eco-industrial Park (EIP) Development: Lessons from Europe

30 September-3 October 2024
France and the Netherlands

Join us to discover how collaborative efforts, policies, and innovative technologies are paving the way for greener, more sustainable industrial landscapes!
*Limited to only 15 participants with a first-come first-served scheme

Background

The global movement towards sustainable development and a circular economy has placed Eco-Industrial Parks (EIPs) at the forefront of industrial transformation. The EIP model is an innovative approach that integrates industrial activity with environmental conservation and community engagement. EIPs aim to achieve environmental, economic, and social sustainability through efficient resource use, waste reduction, and inter-industry synergy.

The importance of EIP development in supporting sustainability has been widely recognized globally. Europe, as one of the leaders in EIP implementation, has demonstrated various strategies, policies, and technological innovations that have significantly enhanced the effectiveness and sustainability of industrial parks. With this experience and success, Europe serves as a valuable example for other countries seeking to develop EIPs.

Recognizing the importance of this development, Energy Academy Indonesia (ECADIN), with support from the Indonesian Embassy in Paris and the Ministry of Industry of the Republic of Indonesia, is organizing the Business Forum & Benchmarking Program “Enhancing EIP Development: Lessons from Europe”, to be held from September 30 to October 3, 2024, in France and the Netherlands.

Objectives

This forum aims to bring these valuable lessons to the forefront, providing a platform for knowledge exchange, collaboration, and best practice sharing among global stakeholders.

The program is designed to not only disseminate best practices but also facilitate benchmarking against standards, enabling participants to gauge their progress and identify areas for improvement. Moreover, the forum is aimed also to foster a collaborative environment where national and sub-national policy makers, EIP managers, and industrial stakeholders can come together to explore innovative solutions and strategies and to strengthen international networks, ultimately contributing to the advancement of sustainable industrial practices.
