The BALANCE project addresses a key priority of the EU related to environmental and climate goals. According to the Green Deal presented by the European Commission in December 2019, Europe should become a climate-neutral continent by 2050.
The project aims to develop and provide SMEs decision-makers with an innovative program, based on ECVET, that will help them transform into greener operations while improving their financial literacy and enhancing their environmental awareness. The BALANCE training program will be available on the projects online platform which will also promote green measures.
The projects target groups are SME’s decision-makers who have not taken any actions related to greener measures, as well as SME’s business consultants in order to reach as many SMEs as possible. The indirect target group are SMEs employees and relevant stockholders include SME’s associations and national agencies, incubators, environmental NGOs, relevant policymakers and adult trainers.
The consortium consists of highly experienced partners that bring different, but also complementary knowledge and experiences to ensure the effective implementation of the project.
