This guide is aimed at industries that might see benefits for themselves in being part of a Network, but are unsure how to go about setting one up, or joining an existing one. As both Eco-Industrial Networks and individual companies vary in size, location, sector and purpose, it is not possible to provide a ‘one-size-fits-all’ list of steps to be taken to establish such a Network. In practice, a range of alternatives has to be considered, and choices made, on the basis of the particular needs, available resources and location of a company. This guide is structured around a set of key questions, and it is intended that in answering these questions a company will be aided in deciding whether it is worthwhile for it to either plan to set up a Network, or join an existing Network.
