The EU aims to become climate neutral by 2050. As manufacturing is a key player in achieving this target,  a shift towards sustainable operations is a must. 

Without awareness of the impacts of geopolitical and demographic changes, global supply chain disruptions and carbon reduction regulations, it is difficult to take the first step towards sustainability. The slow uptake of advanced technologies, social innovation and environmental sustainability prevents competitiveness in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world.

Our Solution

We created two innovative pathways for Manufacturing SMEs and Sustainability and Technology Providers to pilot new methods and technologies for cleaner, energy-saving and cost-reducing operations. Here’s what you can expect:

greenSME offers Manufacturing SMEs and Sustainability and Technology Providers a digital space to connect, collaborate, test new approaches and become part of a wider and needed transition towards climate neutrality and a circular economy.

You must become a member of the greenSME HUB to start your journey.

Get ahead of the game with innovative tools


To address the above challenges, greenSME offers an online community part of our Hub. The Hub is a supportive space to aid the manufacturing sector towards sustainability adoption. It combines current opportunities in digitalisation with growing opportunities of technology and social innovation to enable such transformation.
