Eco- captal bid is powered by new deal
Two development agencies have created a special partnership in a bid to power the way for Peterborough to become the UK’s Envirponment Capital.
Under the deal, Opportunity Peterborough, which is the city’s economic development company, and the UK Centre for Economic and Environmental Development ( UK CEED), have agreed to pool their strengths to achieve the common environmental goal.
A spokesman for the two groups said: “Building on existing collaboration between the two companies, the potential for innovation and economic development in “green” growth will be maximised.
He added: “The approach will enhance Peterborough’s reputation for environmental enterprise, bringing new investment and jobs to the city, and, through UK CEED’s na- tional and international links, will generate more opportunities and leads for city businesses.
Neil Darwin, chief executive of Opportunity Peterborough, will also become the chief executive of UK CEED but will work with separate board sand staff.”
