2011 SEED Annual Report is out! Tuesday, 13 December 2011
“One of the most urgent - but not widely explored - questions at the centre of the debate on transitioning to the Green Economy is how to engage with and deploy the main engine of the global economy - small, micro- and medium-sized enterprises (SMMEs).
Given the right public policies, SMMEs can create significant numbers of green jobs, help to strengthen social structures and resilience at the local level, and use natural resources sustainably. But insights are needed into how best to shape these policies. As a champion of social and environmental entrepreneurship, now with considerable experience of working with locally-led start-ups, SEED unquestionably has a contribution to make” Helen Marquard, Executive Director of the SEED Initiative.
