Two experts from the National Cleaner Production Centre of South Africa (NCPC-SA) returned this weekend from participating in a two-day workshop hosted by the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) on the concept of ‘eco-innovation’. As one of the most effective cleaner production centres in the world, the NCPC-SA, has made an important contribution to the talks and believes that eco-innovations can make a difference to South African business owners.

The NCPC-SA – a national industrial sustainability programme of the Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) hosted by the CSIR – is regarded by the UN as one of the leading proponents of resource efficiency and cleaner production (RECP) in developing countries. The NCPC-SA and national cleaner production centres across the developing world are seen as key drivers for the adoption and implementation of eco-innovation in emerging and transition economies.
