Green businesses, also called sustainable businesses, seek to balance profit with the health of the planet. Green businesses incorporate principles of sustainability into their business decisions in order to reduce their negative impacts on the global or local environment. They do this by selling environmentally friendly products or by greening their processes to make them more environmentally sustainable. Given the imminent threat of climate change to our planet, green businesses endeavour to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Green businesses are future-proof and can be more profitable than conventional businesses. The Training of Trainers Programme on Green Business Development aims to update the skills of business trainers so they can effectively support entrepreneurs on their pathway to environmental sustainability.
Target group: The Training of Trainers Programme welcomes: - Business trainers working for public or private institutions, BDS providers, microfinance institutions or as consultants; - Managers of green business development initiatives and green business incubators and accelerators; - Trainers and staff of business associations and business membership organizations
