image of Environmental Policy Toolkit for SME Greening in EU Eastern Partnership Countries

This toolkit, based on existing good practice, aims to help governments in the EU’s Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine) to design and implement key instruments to promote environmental compliance and green business practices among small and medium-sized enterprises. Reducing the environmental impact of SMEs in both manufacturing and services is a key success factor in greening the economy. At the same time, improving environmental performance is a significant business opportunity for SMEs as important suppliers of goods and services. Developed under the EaP GREEN project, this report will be of interest to environmental and economic ministries, as well as business associations and non-governmental and academic institutions in EaP countries.



Information scheme for greening SMEs in the Republic of Moldova

This chapter lays out a proposed Information Scheme for greening SMEs in the Republic of Moldova. The proposed information scheme includes five different information based tools. Each tool is introduced with relevant objectives, timeframes, links to other instruments, target audience, and proposed implementing partners highlighted. These tools include a subscription-based “Regulatory Watch” service; direct capacity building and awareness raising events, publications, web-tools, and face-to-face advice. The chapter clarifies the roles of different state and non-state actors, and provides suggestions for a broad performance evaluation approach for the proposed Information Scheme.
