A Joint Action Toward Cleaner Production

Swiss-Iran cooperation to improve environmental practices

As ISGM and sba share common vision and objectives, namely the promotion of sustainable development and best environmental practices to business and industry, the scope of cooperation of this MoU lies in the dissemination of knowledge and practices on Cleaner Production and Green Management, via the exchange of scientific knowledge, training and consultation to public and private entities.

Eco-management training course

Several seminars on eco-management were held in Iran to the benefit of executives from Iranian major industries with the aim to raise awareness on the best environmental practices opportunities in the industrial sector. The seminars highlighted particularly the economic benefits of such sustainable practices for an enterprise as they can be used to optimise its operating costs and to improve its image in the perceptions of its stakeholders.

A condensed theoretical basis programme first introduced the concepts of eco-management and Cleaner Production. In order to illustrate concretely these notions, the participants implemented role plays and study various case studies of exemplary and successful best environment practices.
