The NCPC-SA Industrial Symbiosis Programme (ISP) is a free facilitation service that promotes the exchange of residual resources of one company with another company that can make use of it. This results in mutual economic, social and environmental benefits. Resources can be anything – material, energy, water, production waste, assets, logistics or expertise.
The IS Programme aims to build a network of businesses with links or “synergies” between companies. A synergy is completed when resources are exchanged. This leads to economic, environmental and social benefits for both.
