The main aim of the project is to create a new business model that aims to limit environmental impact by promoting eco-innovation through entrepreneurial dynamics of SMEs in Gaziantep.
There are three main stages in the project: 'development of the green transformation scorecard', 'development of the business model and strategy of the green transformation center' and 'awareness raising and access'.
An online tool will be designed and developed to measure where SMEs are in terms of green transformation in various business processes. The designed tool is also expected to guide SMEs in creating roadmaps to fill gaps based on the identification of their needs. Trainings and seminars, in which at least 100 SMEs will participate, will be held in four stages.
Based on the results of the Green Transformation Scorecard and training sessions, 10 SMEs that are advancing in their green transformation strategy and need additional support in terms of their financing and advisory needs will be selected. Eligible SMEs will be referred to the EBRD at the end of the project.
