The AIEN was established in November 2009 to promote and facilitate sustainable development through the application of industrial ecology (IE).
It offers a forum in which members can keep in touch, canvas issues of interest and connect with resources associated with the practice and study of IE.
The company aims to provide a ‘window on the world’ of IE by relaying news, organising events and alerting people to developments in academia and in practice.
For corporate members, the AIEN offers ‘roadside-assistance’; a place to contact for initial advice on matters relating to IE such as obtaining approvals, what resources to engage for a project and how to locate them.
In effect, AIEN aspires to become the ‘go-to’ organisation for all things to do with industrial ecology, including collaboration on the design, planning and implementation of IE projects.
