enviSMART is an Enterprise Europe Network programme designed to provide services to SMEs in the chemical, surface treatment and metal production/processing sectors. These activities usually have quite a high environmental impact and currently face stiff competition from operators in third countries. The project aims to assist these target SMEs in improving their operational efficiency while minimizing their environmental impact.
Of chief importance is the fact that this project shall endeavour to turn environmental limitations into business opportunities as opposed to increased cost burdens. It shall make available environmental expertise and provide a wide choice of services from among the Environmental Service Providers operating within its ambit via the mediation of environmental services between the ESPs and the SMEs.
Through this project, participating companies will be able to sustain higher growth rates via the transformation of environmental challenges into business opportunities whilst reducing their impact on the environment for the benefit of all.
