24 May – Online Training on Access-to-Finance for Eco-Industrial Parks Development and Implementation

The National Cleaner Production Centre South Africa (NCPC-SA) invites industrial park stakeholders and government authorities to online training on access to finance to fund Eco-Industrial Park (EIP) development and implementation.

The transformation of traditional industrial parks to EIPs presents an opportunity for countries to tackle economic, environmental and social challenges while unlocking sustainable industrial development avenues through resource efficient and cleaner production (RECP). For this reason, an Access-to-Finance tool has been developed to avail funding information for RECP projects to support a transition to EIPs.

The NCPC-SA will host a training session to unpack how industrial park stakeholders can access funding to implement EIP approaches.

Objectives and benefits of the training

  • Provide relevant information about available national incentive schemes, grants and credit financing for industrial parks and industries in South Africa.
  • Provide an overview of the types of finance mechanisms available.
  • Provide practical guidance to industrial parks and companies on access to finance.
  • Introduce the newly developed Access-to-Finance Tool developed through GEIPP South Africa and its benefits for industrial parks and companies

Who should attend

  • Management of industrial parks and Special Economic Zones (SEZs)
  • Tenant companies and industries
  • Providers of services, utilities and infrastructures to industrial parks
  • National, provincial and local governmental authorities working with industrial parks
