Selected Projects

The project Low Carbon Business Action is a European-funded initiative that aims at engaging Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) from Brazil and from Member States in Europe promoting the exchange of innovative experiences, supporting companies into their transition to low carbon technologies and resource efficient processes within the Action’s target sub-sectors and related areas, which mostly contribute to the Brazilian emissions of Greenhouse Gases (GHG).

The objectives of the program are:
