Eco-force - Joint actions for eco-responsible cross-border SMEs

Duration: 1 June, 2010 – 30 November, 2011

Project objective: To increase the awareness on the environmental protection and management in the cross-border area between Romania and Bulgaria. The aim is to promote a nature-friendly behaviour among some of the biggest polluters of the environment – the economic operators and in particular SMEs, based in the cross-border region. The objective will be achieved through the implementation of a major awareness raising campaign to stimulate businesses contribute to enhancing the natural endowments of their region, change their attitude and exercise greater care in use of the natural resources, the waste generation and disposal. The action will use various tools and communication techniques to raise awareness on three levels: company management, company employees and sector associations, thus synchronizing the efforts of all actors, concerned for maximizing the effect from the action. Within the project a joint cooperation network for building capacities will be developed. It will serve as a place where resources will be shared and best practices and experience in environmental management will be exchanged in order to be equally accessible by eligible beneficiaries of both countries.

Results: awareness on the environmental protection and management in the cross-border area will be increased; nature-friendly behaviour among some of the biggest polluters of the environment will be promoted.
