About Project

About Project

The GEIPP Ukraine Project is a part of the Global Eco-Industrial Programme implemented by UNIDO in seven countries and funded by the Government of Switzerland through the SECO through the State Secretariat of Economic Affairs. The main beneficiary of the Project is the Ministry of Economy of Ukraine. The Project started in 2020 and will last through 2024.

The main objective of the Project is to demonstrate the viability and benefits of Eco-Industrial Park approaches in scaling up resource productivity and improving economic, environmental, and social performances of businesses and thereby contributing to inclusive and sustainable industrial development in Ukraine.

The specific expected outcome in Ukraine is improved environmental, economic, and social performance of industries in Ukraine through the implementation of EIP approaches in the selected pilot industrial parks and the increased role of EIP in environmental, industrial, and other relevant policies at the national level.

The GEIPP Ukraine Project will address Eco-Industrial Parks development in Ukraine through 2 Components:

  • Component 1 aims to mainstream EIP into the national policy and create splendid conditions for EIP development in Ukraine. The review of and amendments to the current legislation will be elaborated within the EIP policy working group established by the Ministry of Economy of Ukraine.

  • Component 2 aims to provide detailed technical (RECP assessments, industrial synergies identification) and strategic support (EIP concept planning and zoning, performance monitoring, community outreach) of three selected industrial parks (BVAK in Bila Tserkva, AgroMash in Zaporizhzhia, and Patriot in Sumy) to assist their transition into Eco-Industrial Parks.

A series of awareness-raising and capacity-building events are planned within both components of the Project.
