In 2019 UNIDO used its EIP tool for selecting industrial parks to identify the parks with higher potential of becoming an EIP with the support of GEIPP in Ukraine. The Prioritization of pre-selected industrial parks was based on a set of qualitative criteria covering park management, environmental, economic, and social aspects, replicability, and visibility.

Answer and Questions


An Eco-Industrial Park is a community of businesses located on a common property in which businesses seek to achieve enhanced environmental, economic, and social performance through collaboration in managing environmental and resource issues.

Industrial symbiosis is a form of brokering to bring companies together in innovative collaborations, finding ways to use the waste from one as raw materials for another. It’s peculiar for Eco-Industrial Parks.

Although many Eco-Industrial Parks have industrial symbiosis implemented, it’s still not the basis for EIP. The basis for EIP is proper management, zoning, and cooperation among tenants.

EIP is a more advanced version of IP that besides economic benefits results in environmental and social ones, promoting sustainable development.
