Neutopia’s Business Model

Neutopia ecoSOLUTIONS Inc. is a Community Enhancement Company that is recruited by Municipalities to develop our Neutopia ecoPARK & Green Community Plans™ to establish a local Green Economy focused on Renewable Energy, Landfill Diversion and Building Energy Efficiency technologies. Essentially, communities should be regarded as living organisms; what comes in, what goes out, and how the different services and local industries can connect like organs in the body functioning harmoniously to benefit the whole.

Neutopia is pioneering an innovative Social Benefit business model that is set to revolutionize community planning policies. We traveled over 80,000 km across North America over 2 years to understand the most common problems that communities face and created a new type of company that can offer the technological solutions while ensuring the revenues are maintained in the community. Specifically for the province of Ontario, we estimate that for every month a community waits to join the program they are losing as much as $100,000 in a local green economy that is just waiting to be developed. We have yet to visit a community where this base case cannot be achieved.

We have formed a network of strategic alliances with a host of technology providers and engineering firms enabling Neutopia to present a complete suite of green technologies to help entire communities to ‘go green’ and to solve energy and waste problems while creating new synergistic business opportunities throughout the region with long-term sustainable employment. We accomplish this by creating our unique Neutopia ecoPARK & Green Community Plan™ based on the concepts of biological systems integration; a methodology similar to what Kaizen and Six Sigma™ have done for industries, although on a much larger scale to benefit entire communities. The business model has attracted the Monieson Centre of Queen’s University School of Business where Neutopia has been a guest lecturer on Social Innovation and Leadership in Business (see Appendix).

The first Neutopia Green Community Partnership Programs™ were launched in 2010 and attracted more than $165 million in development projects that will take up to three years to develop and create significant employment opportunities. The initiative also attracted million$ in smaller scale projects that have less than 4 month sales cycles, promising to make 2012 a breakthrough year for the innovative business concept.

The Neutopia Green Energy Investment Network™ was established to enable individual clients and entire municipalities to accelerate purchase decisions without having any negative impacts to existing operational budgets. In other words, our clients will be able to save short term cash while pursuing long term economic gain.

It is our belief that every community should have an ecoPARK tailored to meet the needs of the community and local industries. At the very least it will be a site to generate clean energy and/or bio-based products from under-utilized local resources. This would be done in a sustainable manner, ensuring long term employment and an attractive investment opportunity for the community as they will reap significant rewards on the minor costs associated with recruiting Neutopia to the region.
