Context

The Ecy-Twin project is an awareness-raising campaign that accompanies textile and woodworking companies in the field of ecodesign and sustainable development, in the aim to market products or services with limited environmental impact that comply with the consumers' expectations.

Through our collaboration with the scientific operators of the project, we offer an easy access to tools including life cycle analysis (LCA), carbon balance ®, best available technologies (BAT) and Eco-Design.

We also would like to help them in the implementation of new business models, such as "functional economy" that replaces the selling of a good by the selling of a service that fulfills the same function as the good. 

The ultimate goal is to promote eco-designed products on the market and to give new growth leverage in PMEs of the cross-border region.

This objective is in line with the Europe 2020 strategy, since we offer the PMA a better access to the market by cross-border cooperation and support.
