EU4Environment call in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Moldova: provision of services to introduce the Single Market for Green Products (SMGP)


EU4Environment is looking for organisations and institutions ready to support the introduction of the Single Market for Green Products (SMGP) initiative in Armenia, Azerbaijan, and the Republic of Moldova, and promote the Product Environmental Footprint (PEF).

The deadline for applications is 15 September.

To become “environmentally-friendly” or obtain “eco-labels”, products and services can use a variety of voluntary methods to stand out within their product category or sector. In the European Union (EU) alone, there are over 230 eco-labels, but for companies trying to market their products as environmentally friendly, striking the right balance between market opportunities and market challenges can be difficult. The wide variety of “ecolabels” – each with its own methodological requirements, may result in additional costs or delays for the companies, and in confusion for the consumers.

To address these issues, enhance comparability within a product category, and give clear indicators to producers and consumers alike, the European Commission introduced under the 2013 Single Market for Green Products (SMGP) initiative, the Product Environmental Footprint (PEF).

The call is part of the ‘Circular Economy and New Growth Opportunities’ work implemented by UNIDO under the EU4Environment Action in the EU’s Eastern Partner (EaP) countries.
