The Sustainable Development Unit of UEAPME focuses on EU Environmental policy and on the environmental aspects of EU Energy policy. This Unit voices the concerns of SMEs when having to comply with strict legislative requirements while lacking the necessary means (information, technical support and expertise, financing, etc.) to do so. Therefore, initiatives such as the Environmental Compliance Assistance Programme (ECAP), aimed at assisting SMEs in complying with environmental legislation, are warmly welcome and encouraged. The Unit mainly follows the legislative process of new and revised EU legislation in order for it to be applicable by SMEs while meeting the environmental and climate challenges of today.
