The Jordan Cleaner Production Program (JCPP)

 Triggered by JNEFI’s success, FOEs launched in 2002 the Jordan Cleaner Production Program (JCPP).

JCPP, headed by His Royal Highness Prince Firas Bin Raad, signifies the debut of a new future for Jordanian SME’s and will be in cooperation with the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).

This program is based on building national alliances between nine governmental, semi governmental and non-governmental institutions.

To expand JNEFI’s services, to facilitate the information exchange between the Jordanian Industries and the International industries around the world and to answer the environmental expectations of the Jordanian industrialists, JNEFI had became part of the DELTA Programme (
Developing Environmental Leadership Towards Action) on 2000.

 

 

The DELTA Networks are operating in: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Palestine, Syria, Tunisia and Turkey. During the last 8 years of activity, the DELTA Programme (Developing Environmental Leadership Towards Action) saw the establishment of DELTA Networks in each of the countries concerned and assured the good operation of their structure on a national level.The DELTA Networks gather the most pro-active industrialists in an environmental perspective that act concretely in their own company with the help of their staff towards better working and environmental conditions.

EJADA
EJADA’s grant was provided in response to the urgent need, which is to build the FOE/JNEFI capacity in order to further develop and strengthen the JCPP, FOE/JNEFI has taken on the responsibility to upgrade and build the necessary capacity of the JNEFI.

 

It is clear that building up such capacity will create a certain high standard of performance within JNEFI staff, which ultimately makes JNEFI’s task of providing the necessary services easy to achieve. This will be made possible by strengthening the technical infrastructure at the FOEs/JNEFI.
