Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH
The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a service provider in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development and international education work. Together with our commissioning parties and partners, we generate and implement ideas for political, social and economic change.
As one approach to mainstream Eco-Industrial Parks, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, promotes the idea of “Sustainable Industrial Areas” (SIA). For many years, projects addressing various aspects of sustainable industrial areas have been carried out by GIZ in many countries. The representatives of SIA projects and experts involved have formed the GIZ-working group on Sustainable Industrial Areas (SIA).
GIZ, World Bank Group and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) have recently partnered to provide further guidance on a broad definition of SIA or Eco-Industrial Parks (EIP). The three organizations jointly published the International Framework for Eco-Industrial Parks to provide a common understanding of EIPs with minimum requirements and performance expectations as to how an industrial park can become an EIP.
