Green Entrepreneurship - Changemaker in the Western Balkans

June 2022

As the six Balkan countries are transforming their policies and becoming less carbon-intensive, promoting a green economy and green businesses is just the first component of transforming their economies.

The green economy framework promotes coherence between economic and environmental policies and further support the SDGs that are meant to be integrated with sustainable development.

Green businesses, also known as sustainable enterprises, aim to strike a balance between profit and resource sustainability.

The United Nations Member States adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development External in 2015, which established 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aimed at achieving a sustainable and equitable future for people and the planet by eradicating poverty, combating inequality, and addressing the urgent threat of climate change.
The business community is an important factor in this drive to make this vision a reality, with many corporations examining their environmental effect and adopting Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) standards in the pursuit of ethical and sustainable business practices.

This Policy Brief aims to explain the challenges of the Western Balkans in promoting a green economy and green businesses as the first step in transforming their economies.
