Eco Industrial Parks Toolbox

The NCPC-SA and UNIDO have developed an ever-growing set of tools for industrial parks, their tenants and policy makers. The purpose of the tools and guides is to provide free resources that will aid in the transition of parks to the EIP model.

The Eco-Industrial Park (EIP) approach has proven successful in scaling up resource productivity and improving economic, environmental and social performances of businesses in shared geographical locations. We hope these tools will prove a useful resource and guide. Please contact us for further assistance in this important journey by emailing ncpc@csir.co.za.

Resources of the Global EIP Programme in South Africa (GEIPP-SA)

The Global Eco-Industrial Parks Programme aims to drive the implementation of EIP practices in industrial parks. The NCPC-SA has the capacity to support a selection of parks as part of the project, but would wish to see the principles of EIP being implemented in all commercial and industrial parks and zones.

In pursuit of this goal, the NCPC-SA and partners have produced the following tools for South African park management and tenant companies. The information pieces can be downloaded as individual fliers or a complete set in a book format.

UNIDO EIP Toolbox

This toolbox is a practical set of spreadsheets designed for capturing and understanding data. The tools are made possible through the GLobal Eco-Industrial Parks Programme (GEIPP), implemented internationally by UNIDO.

The objectives of the UNIDO EIP Toolbox are to:

  • Provide a practical set of customised and flexible tools to assist practitioners with the development and implementation of eco-industrial parks and related initiatives; and
  • Support EIP implementation and decision making processes in relation to existing and new industrial parks.
