The implementation of 28 projects alongside the economic effect of increasing the competitiveness and improving the financial performance of enterprises has brought about ecological effect on several levels.
Investments have led to the reduction or avoidance of emissions into the atmosphere directly in companies. There are also new "green" products that will bring environmental benefits to end users.
Measurable benefits have improved the working conditions of new technological lines, with less dustiness and less harmful emissions. Integral elements of the projects and activities accompanying the Program were the enhancement of corporate social responsibility (CSR) competences. Projects were also involved in raising environmental awareness among employees.
Investments in partnership with Norwegian entities, as well as participation in Innovation Norway conferences and workshops, has led to closer bilateral contacts between beneficiaries and companies, research institutions and clusters from Norway.
