Background - Directives setting limits on emissions:
Directive 2000/25/EC sets limits on the emissions of gaseous and particulate pollutants by engines intended to power agricultural and forestry tractors.
Two years on from the endorsement of the Small Business Act by the Member States, the EESC Employers' Group held on the 2nd of December, in partnership with BUSINESSEUROPE, EUROCHAMBRES and UEAPME, a Seminar to assess the added value of the EU initiative for individual business managers and small and medium-sized enterprises.
The "green economy" is a significant business opportunity for SMEs, but they require reliable partners in financing their investments and the right legislative framework. This was the message brought forward at the European conference "How green makes money", which took place in Brussels earlier this month to which GRTU President Paul Abela and Director General Vincent Farrugia attended. The conference featured President Herman Van Rompuy, Minister Vincent Van Quickenborne as well as economists Jeremy Rifkin and Geert Noels. The event was organised by the Belgian Presidency of the EU and the European Commission in association with UEAPME and its Belgian members UNIZO and UCM.
