Eco- cap­tal bid is pow­ered by new deal

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Business Telegraph -

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.”
