SMART Cebu

SMEs for environmental Accountability, Responsibility and Transparency

The SWITCH-Asia project "SMART CEBU: SMEs for environmental Accountability, Responsibility and Transparency" sought to increase the competitiveness of SMEs in the home and lifestyle industries and to contribute to a cleaner environment of the Cebu region of the Philippines.

The project assisted partner organisations in moving to cleaner production processes. Three of Cebu's home and lifestyle industry sectors now receive assistance on how to convert to cleaner production and to develop new lines of eco-friendly products.

The project strived to increase the adoption and thorough utilisation of SCP practices by BMOs. By developing effective marketing strategies and by increasing environmental performance of local production practices, the project had boosted sales of green products manufactured in Cebu.

Duration: 2/2010 - 9/2013

Total budget: EUR 1,224,482 (EU Contribution: 80%)
