Scaling up Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) amongst SMEs -Circular Economy and New Growth Opportunities
Funded by the European Union, the “EU4Environment” Action aims to preserve and better use the natural capital, increase people’s environmental well-being, and stimulate economic growth in the six EaP countries. By bringing together environmental and economic actors, it helps deliver policy and legislative changes, making planning and investment greener, stimulating thus the uptake of innovative technologies by adopting new business models and creating green jobs. It also promotes better environmental governance, improved management of protected areas and forests, and sustainable trade. The Action, spanning from 2019-2022, involves five implementing organizations – OECD, UNECE, UNEP, UNIDO, and the World Bank – that will focus on producing tangible and achievable results in line with the goals, priorities, and overall cooperation targets defined by the Partner countries.
