Help to SMEs

Help to SMEs
We must overcome information gap and help SMEs, says Prof. Chongrak, SERD Dean

SMEs lag far behind in environmental management skills, yet they make up the sector
most likely to use production processes harmful to the environment.

It is vital that SMEs adopt cleaner manufacturing techniques, not only to prevent pollution but
also to enjoy greater success in overseas markets, such as the US, Europe and Australia, where
much importance is placed on the ISO certification of exporters.
