Sustainable Transition to the Agile and Green Enterprise (STAGE)
In an ambitious effort to promote sustainability and support green initiatives, the STAGE Programme has announced the launch of a recruitment call for companies, inviting businesses to participate in a unique sustainability transition ecosystem. Aimed at industrial enterprises, this initiative offers dedicated support to transform companies into competitive and sustainable leaders within the European industrial community.
The STAGE Programme provides a multitude of benefits to businesses keen on making a sustainable impact. Companies that join this transformative journey can expect:
1. Sustainability Assessments: All registered companies will have free access to the STAGE assessment tools, including Initial and Performance assessments, Carbon Footprint assessment, and EU Taxonomy assessment. Learn more about each of these here.
2. Sustainability Training Courses: Businesses can freely partake in Decentralised Training Courses on various sustainability topics and attend online or in-person workshops, fostering valuable discussions and networking opportunities.
3 Financial Grant Programme and Tailored Advisory: Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from EU member states or Horizon Europe-associated countries will also be eligible to apply for financial support. The STAGE Financial Grant Programme will be launched in August 2023, and it will offer funding of up to 50,000 EUR per SME to companies who have registered on the STAGE platform and completed the initial steps. Additional financial advisory tools will be available for the enterprises with the highest potential to attract private investment.
All participating enterprises will be matched with one or more dedicated Sustainability Advisors based on their preferences and needs. These experts will guide companies during every step of their STAGE journey and help them develop their tailor-made Sustainability Transition Plans – the key document to apply for grant funding and become investment-ready.
As the world continues to prioritise environmental consciousness, the STAGE Programme presents an unparalleled opportunity for businesses to make a positive impact on their sustainability journey. Regardless of a company's current status, this ecosystem provides the tools, resources, and guidance necessary to foster long-lasting, eco-conscious practices.
For those interested in taking the leap towards sustainability, the STAGE Platform is now available for registration. Join and embark on the path of meaningful change in the global business landscape. Together, we can pave the way for a more environmentally conscious and prosperous future.
