Project Summary

The Strathcona Business Improvement Association (SBIA) developed a Green Zone Strategy as part of its 5-year mandate renewal process. The goal is to support member businesses “in increasing their productivity through sustainable and environmental means”. The Green Zone Strategy includes strategic directions in programming and structural operation for the SBIA. Our team contributed an overview of the eco-industrial approach, a description of the existing EIN-related context in Strathcona (i.e. business and spatial characterization), a discussion of the 10 eco-industrial opportunities considered, as well as an implementation plan for the prioritized opportunity, Waste Reutilization. We also participated in directing a business “speed dating” networking event to identify waste synergies.
