The Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) is rebranding to reflect its evolution as an association and its continued work to grow and support the green economy in the province. As Econext, the association will accelerate clean growth in Newfoundland and Labrador.
“We have seen and proven that our association can play a substantial role in helping the province to realize sustainable development opportunities,” said Ashley Noseworthy, chair of Econext and CEO of EDGEWISE Environmental. “But over the past two years we have also come to recognize that we needed a brand that would allow us convey that excitement and continual pursuit. A brand that would help us draw more attention to what is happening here on national and international stages.”
Noseworthy said that the association believes that it can do more to uncover what’s next for Newfoundland and Labrador’s economy. “This exciting new brand will allow our association to represent our members more effectively and deliver on clean growth projects in Newfoundland and Labrador.”
“In 1992 the founding members of NEIA had the foresight to create an organization that would help grow Newfoundland and Labrador’s environmental industry,” added Noseworthy. “Increasing global pressures to fight climate change, decarbonize, and pursue net zero have now brought to the forefront a series of substantial new economic growth and diversification opportunities for our province.”
Noseworthy says that as Econext, the organization can do more to work with industries, governments, communities, and institutions at all levels to unlock this vast potential.
Econext is an association of businesses that accelerates clean growth in Newfoundland and Labrador. Econext works on behalf of over 200 members to foster environmentally sustainable economic development.
