CSI'S BIG BOLD CAMPAIGN
Let's Make the Northwest
THE National Leader
in Industrial Symbiosis
We want the Northwest to become the North American leader in clean manufacturing and production. Our vision is for the Northwest to embrace the circular economy and adapt and improve upon the ‘industrial symbiosis’ model. This will not only help industry reduce waste and pollution – but also spur job creation and economic development in the clean economy benefiting rural, suburban and urban communities throughout the Northwest. Clean manufacturing can also offer innovative transportation, energy, waste and water approaches that can lead to new sustainable infrastructure solutions.
New studies show that re-imagining manufacturing and production is a helpful and important step to addressing climate change; the production of goods supplied into the global economy is a large contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.
