The Clean Technology Centre, along with EPS Consulting, Dublin and Envirocentre, Belfast have been commisioned by Forfas and InterTradeIreland to carry out the study: Assessment of Enterprise Opportunities in Environmental Goods and Services Industry.
The aim of the project is fourfold:
- To estimate the size of the EGS sector on the island of Ireland.
- To examine the drivers and strengths/weaknesses associated with the sub-sectors identified.
- To identify the EGS areas best disposed for growth opportunities in the future.
- To identify possible support mechanisms and legislative frameworks conducive to assist the growth of the EGS sector.
The project will commence in November 2007 and conclude in February 2008.
