iBlue Workshop on Sustainable Business Models for SMEs
Crowne Plaza Hotel, Limassol, 19 September 2019
The iBlue Project aims to support small enterprises in the Mediterranean yachting sector adapt and integrate key strategic objectives in sustainability, environmental management, and corporate social responsibility.
Supported by the EU Interreg-Med Programme, the iBlue Project has developed a 3-Pillar Business Model for use by small- and medium-enterprises. This Model adds important strategic objectives and metrics for sustainability and social awareness to three existing analytical tools:
