TORONTO, Oct. 14 /CNW/ - Eco-Industrial Solutions of Vancouver is pleased to announce it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with two Toronto-based firms to create the Eco-Business Zone Alliance in Ontario. The Alliance includes the Sustainable Learning Centre, the Innovolve Group and Eco-Industrial Solutions.
Under this agreement, the three firms will collaborate to bring to market a holistic solution featuring eco-industrial strategies, communications and training, all with a view to transforming employment lands into Eco-business zones. For businesses, rising costs related to energy, water and waste are driving eco-business approaches to find efficiencies within and across organizations, gain competitive advantage and maintain shareholder confidence. There are also regional branding benefits to be gained once an Eco-business zone is up and running. With provincial drivers such as the Green Energy Act and Places to Grow, communities are supporting eco-business zones to help local businesses grow and expand sustainably, and to attract new, progressive businesses and green jobs.
"The combined value proposition of the Alliance is unique in nature," says Tracy Casavant, President of Eco-Industrial Solutions, "and offers both an efficiency and expertise to municipalities and businesses interested in greening employment lands."
