Abstract

The state of North Rhine-Westphalia’s pilot project for Eco Industrial Parks aims to integrate ecological, economic, and social considerations into the planning, development and operation of new and existing industrial and commercial parks in the state. Toward this end, the Ministry is helping eight of the state’s communities to realize sustainable planning for pilot projects in various stages of development involving an extremely broad range of commercial and industrial park typologies and developmental phases. The project stakeholders are municipalities, economic development agencies, enterprises, and private investors. As part of a project-related kickoff event on April 11, 2006, the state of North Rhine-Westphalia granted participating municipalities the status of Eco Industrial Park partners for the project.
