eco innovation needs and challenges in emerging markets
Eco-innovation needs and challenges in emerging markets
  • Population growth and increasing resource scarcity including land, water, food, as well as nature degradation
  • Climate change, through its effects on water, is threatening agriculture, and disaster prone areas
  • Increasing industrialisation and urbanisation which puts increasing pressure on environment
  • Growing middle class following western consumption style
  • Increasing awareness of government in greening their economies, adoption of targets (e.g. for renewable energy)
  • Increasing demand for green products and services
key messages to the european smes
Key messages to the European SMEs
  • Markets in the emerging economies are growing and offer opportunities ranging from trade to innovation collaboration.
  • Business should invest in analysing locations they plan to get involved in (nature of opportunities, barriers and drivers differ in regions).
  • There are EU and national measures supporting European companies in internationalising. SMEs entering emerging markets are advised to tap from these initiatives and use materials and hands-on expertise.
  • The involvement of European SMEs in emerging economies should not be seen as one-way relationship, but rather a mutual learning process.
policy messages to eu government s
Policy messages to EU government(s)
  • While developing cooperation in eco-innovation with emerging economies, follow a coherent and cooperative approach, incl. demonstrating a strong commitment to sustainability issues at all levels.
  • Successfully implemented cooperation schemes could be diffused in different emerging regions, in collaboration with local stakeholders and, if relevant, international organisations.
  • Assist in strengthening various aspects of the institutional and regulatory frameworks in developing and emerging countries, and promoting eco-innovation support measures (supply and demand)
  • Work towards global targets for resource efficiency, renewable energy, waste, footprints
