ELEEN - About the project

The overall objective is to support SMEs to absorb methods and tools that simultaneously reduce their impact on the environment, and increase their profitability.

To achieve this, we will provide services that will help SMEs turning environmental challenges into economic opportunities. We will reinforce Network partners' environmental expertise and support SMEs in ecodesign, energy efficiency and environmental management systems (EMS), with focus on legislation on:

  • EUP (Energy Using Products)
  • REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restrictions of Chemicals)
  • WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment)
  • RoHS (Restrictions on the use of Hazardous Substances in electronic equipment)

The target group are product manufacturing SMEs in four economic key sectors:

  • Production and processing of metals
  • Textiles
  • Manufacturing of electronic/electric and components
  • Surface treatment
