& Local Introductions
We advocate for our members by providing opportunities for international exposure through our member showcase as well as offer introductions to key local officials & institutions.
Indian River Eco-District is reshaping how business innovation can partner with environmental & community stewardship; our members benefit from being on the forefront of IRED'S story through the exposure provided, in addition to tangible benefits.
Part Of The Community
We aren’t just in the local community, we are part of it. Helping our members make the right local connections is just one way we help them gain competitive advantages & benefit from relationships with the local business community.
Green Values, Valued
If we could sum up the ideals of IRED in one word, it would be "ecovation". We are innovating a business environment that combines environmental stewardship with sustainable profitability for all our members; we call that ecovation.
Byproducts Into Resources
Instead of paying for the removal of waste byproducts our members are strategically selected so that one company's waste byproduct is a resource for another. This allows each member to benefit from the symbiotic relationships.
Communicating Clearly & Broadly
We pride ourselves in being on the cutting edge of innovation. Our members are able to utilize the IRED members' exclusive web badge. This is used on social media & websites to highlight their commitment to being "green" & innovative.
