In a world where environmental concerns are mounting and climate change is accelerating, the need for sustainable and green entrepreneurship has never been more critical. With the financial assistance of the European Union under the ENI CBC Mediterranean Sea Basin Programme, Berytech, in collaboration with Cewas and Eco Consulting, developed the “Toolkit for Green and Circular Entrepreneurship” that covers every stage of development, from ideation to acceleration, and is designed to guide business support organizations (BSOs) to lead Green Entrepreneurs and SMEs, not only in Lebanon but across the entire Mediterranean region.
