Good Practice Description

Integration of social, economic and environmental issues: The project has shown that the integration of social, economic and environmental issues was a big success. The companies felt that all their needs were covered through the project. An important point to highlight is that the tangible results that the companies experienced through energy savings, increased productivity and quality etc. increased the motivation of the companies to make improvements in the other areas. The approach of such a holistic approach should therefore be replicated in similar projects.

The project has proven that the holistic approach of integrating economic, social and environmental issues is successful. It was observed that the immediate results and improvements that companies could experience by implementing elements of "Cleaner Production" lead to higher motivation to initiate changes concerning social issues.
