Promoting Resource Efficiency in Small and Medium Enterprises (Pre-SME)


The project 'Promoting Resource Efficiency in Small and Medium Enterprises(PRE-SME)' was an industrial exercise on integrated implementation of the Toolkit of Promoting Resource Efficiency in SMEs (PRE-SME) and the Responsible Production Handbook as a follow-up to the regional training that was organized by UNEP in which the Centre participated.
