ADFIAP Consulting

European Commisson’s SWITCH Asia Programme – SMEs for Environmental Accountability, Responsibility and Transparency (SMART)-Cebu Project

ADFIAP is one of the partners in the SMART Cebu Project implemented by a consortium of European and Philippine organizations in Cebu that is aimed at increasing the competitiveness of three (3) industry sectors (Gifts, Toys and Housewares; Furnitures and Furnishings; and Fashion Accessories) by greening their production processes and developing eco-friendly products to be able to enter the green markets in Europe and Asia. The efforts on the production side will be complemented by a marketing and export strategy in order to stimulate demand for these green products from Cebu as well as access to finance by MSME entrepreneurs to support investments relative to the shifting of production process to green technology.

AC’s role is to design, develop and implement training and coaching on how to develop a Business Agenda on Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP); conduct advocacy programs for SCP and other environmental matters in related sectors; design, develop and conduct training programs to SMEs on financial management and how to access funding from financial institutions; coordinate with financial institutions in the development of financial schemes for environmental projects of MSMEs; and organize fora that would serve as platform for financial institutions and MSMEs to match their financing requirements.
