National Industrial Symbiosis Program Pilot Launched!


Thank you to all the funders and supporters who have made it possible for Light House to launch the Canadian pilot of NISP.


The first workshop takes place on Thursday October 26 at the Annacis Research Centre in Delta from 9 AM to 1 PM.


This is a FREE business opportunities workshop based on industrial symbiosis. Businesses across Metro Vancouver are invited to participate.


The workshop aims to help businesses:


  • Turn waste into a resource
  • Save money on waste costs
  • Generate new business opportunities
  • Network with other local businesses
  • Improve environmental performance
  • Be part of the circular economy


This workshop is the first of six workshops being delivered as part of the National Industrial Symbiosis Program (NISP) Pilot project – a first in Canada!. The NISP model has been proven worldwide to create the most regional industrial symbiosis in the shortest time! Industrial symbiosis business opportunities include business-to-business partnerships to transform wastes or by-products from one business into higher value inputs for other businesses, as well as business-to-business collaboration to maximize efficient use of logistics, space, or even R&D resources. Under the NISP model, BUSINESSES ONLY IMPLEMENT OPPORTUNITIES THAT MAKE BUSINESS SENSE TO THEM. The NISP model is endorsed by the G7, OECD, EU, and Global Green Growth Forum and has been adapted in 21 countries.
