New toolbox for sustainability initiatives
Johanneberg Science Park has since one year worked together with the technology parks FUNDECYT-PCTEX in Spain, Tehnopol in Estonia and external experts in an EU project to share experiences and identify opportunities in the field of sustainability for small and medium-sized companies (SMEs). The background is the rapid change that is now required and the conviction that SMEs need to be at the forefront of this.
The project has now published its final report which contains detailed information on no less than 13 different initiatives in the areas of ecological, social, and economic sustainability originating in Estonia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden. During the project, the participants presented their respective initiatives and discussed how to implement each other's proposals. In addition to the project participants, experts from the EU's Joint Research Center Policy Lab, the European Business and Innovation Centre Network and Circular Change, among others, have contributed initiatives and experiences.
Initiatives described in the report are, for example
- Acceleration program for social entrepreneurship
- Alternative mobility solutions for personal transport
- Tools for achieving the SDG goals
- Development of sustainable future business models
- Estimation of the degree of circularity of operations
The report describes the initiatives, their strengths and weaknesses, target group, purpose and more.
