The Commission has published a study on SMEs and the environment in the EU. The report estimates the environmental impact from SMEs in Europe and analyses the administrative burdens from EU environmental legislation and the business opportunities for SMEs with concrete examples from 13 European countries.
The study comes with a web based toolkit to assist policy-makers and SMEs in developing environmental improvements. A database allows the user to compare the environmental impact of certain indicators among Member States and within a specific industrial sector per type of company.
