Small enterprises: Shift to green economy underway, but not at full speed yet

 
  More  

"I am happy to see that SMEs are taking on this huge untapped potential which will pay off with more innovation, more competitive SMEs and more jobs. However, there is still a lot of work to do. Only very few European SMEs extend their green business to foreign markets. Knowing that the EU makes up roughly one third of the world market for environmental industries this reveals a huge potential for SMEs to grow."


 
Vice-President of the European Commission Antonio Tajani
