I am delighted that Birmingham-based International Synergies Limited is leading the way through its widely respected industrial symbiosis programme, the application of which is rapidly gaining traction globally. It is now up to our cities and businesses to embrace the industrial symbiosis model to help meet their own resource efficiency challenges.

International Synergies’ facilitated industrial symbiosis model aligns very well with the aims of the Cleaner Production Centre, providing means to engage with companies together with structured processes and support tools to increase resource efficiency through the identification of new business opportunities that exploit currently under-utilised resources.
