SME Green Skills HUB

Supporting the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals in small and medium sized enterprises through VET

In 2015, all the Members from the United Nations signed an agreement to implement the 2030 Agenda on 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be reached and a call on all businesses to apply their creativity and innovation to solve these challenges. Despite the growing interest from businesses in sustainable innovation, the SDGs are largely new territory for small and medium-sized enterprises(SMEs).
