  • 5. WHat is CEEM Central Environmental and Energy Management as a Kit for Survival Ceem -Central Environmental and Energy Management as a Kit for Survival- is a cooperation project funded by the ERDF under the Central Europe Operative program started in November 2012 and lasting until November 2014. Protecting environment is particularly relevant for Central Europe where the ongoing economic catching-up process brings about new opportunities as well as threats for the environment It involves 12 partners from 5 EU countries: Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Hungary, Czech Republic. The starting point for the project is the consideration that the involved Central European Regions are characterized by a medium-high economic activity mainly performed by micro and SMEs, belonging for the most to the traditional industrial sectors (i.e. construction & building, food, manufacturing, automotive). CEEM what These companies have a strong impact on the Central Europe environment; thus a key factor for a sustainable economic development of this region is the implementation of environmentally friendly technologies in the goods’ life cycle. 4 CEEM aims at supporting environmentally friendly technologies and activities in the program area by offering to companies operational methods, good practices and an IT tool to match jointly environmental positive performance towards business improvement. In order to reach this goal, the communication of social and environmental advantages of green economy, the implementation of cleaner production and consumption patterns and the involvement of public and private stakeholders and policy makers are the way CEEM aims to give its contribution towards the achievements set out in Europe 2020 Strategy.
  • 6. Growth from knowledge Create an inclusive society Build a greener, internationally competitive economy Europe 2020 addresses the shortcomings of our growth model creating the conditions for more sustainable and more inclusive development CEEM will give an important contribution to key documents definition like regional/national policies on issues about environment taxes, emissions trading, ecoincentives for companies, etc. After that these topics will be discussed on territorial and transnational level in the CEEM laboratories. The project will bring closer the harmonization of the standards and incentive schemes enhancing the internal integration of the Central Europe cooperation area. This way CEEM will follow the lesson for EU2020: “Investing in cleaner, low carbon technologies will help our environment, contribute to fighting climate change and create new business and employment opportunities1”. 1 Brussels, 3.3.2010 COM(2010) 2020 final COMMUNICATION FROM THE COMMISSION EUROPE 2020 A strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ. do?uri=COM:2010:2020:FIN:EN:PDF CEEM what Europe 2020: the strategy for the next decade Europe 2020 aims to overcome the current economic downturn and prepare the EU economy for the next decade, by shifting the focus on a trio of interlinked priorities: growing from knowledge, creating an inclusive society and building a greener, internationally competitive economy. CEEM project is going towards these EU goals in order to contribute to European development, starting from the Central Europe area. Project partners will involve local and state authorities (decision makers) into project activities, committing them in the project’s results sustainability. 5
  • 7. CEEM GOALS IMPROVING companies ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE Ceem aims at enhancing Central Europe companies Eco-Energy performance. CEEM GOALS By addressing a sample of Central European companies mainly from the traditional strategic sectors (i.e. construction & building, food, manufacturing, automotive), the project aims at increasing their awareness about environmental issues and will promote the adoption of environmentally friendly technologies that help productive activities being eco-efficient and reducing their energy costs. 6 SAVING ENERGY & NATURAL RESOURCES IMPLEMENTING INNOVATIVE METHODS OF ENERGY MANAGEMENT Ceem aims at reducing Energy waste. INTRODUCING INNOVATIVE METHODOLOGIES OF ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT Spreading innovative methods of energy management. The increased responsibility of industrial companies towards the environment will lead to important savings of energy and natural resources, to reduce industrial waste, air and water pollution and traffic. The ICT tool (3EMT) developed by the project will help companies to improve their environmental performance and energy efficiency by adopting positive behaviors, technologies and innovative management procedures. Also employees, suppliers and all company’s stakeholders will be sensitized on the issue of cleaner production and consumption of goods, thus to increase the demand for green goods in Central Europe and establish a virtuous circle. Eco-Energy experts from Central Europe regions will be involved in the project. Their task will be to mentor companies taking part into the pilot action, how to adopt new measures to make more with less energy. The Eco-Energy experts will help entrepreneurs to implement ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ in their current energy management patterns. The starting point for these actions will be the Assessment Reports generated by the 3EMT tool per each company that will fulfill the online self-assessment questionnaire. A performing toolkit for competitiveness. The development of an easy toolkit allowing enterprises to self-assess their eco-energy management performances and giving them back a tailored strategy for its improvement constitutes an important element of innovation for the internal management. Companies will learn innovative methodologies of environmental management by introducing tools and standards acknowledged at EU and International level (under EU-Regulation EMAS II, ISO 14001, European Eco-Label, ISO 14064, the Green Key, and others). Ceem toolkit will give companies the chance to discover their benchmark per field and region. Moreover it will suggest them how to reach greener production processes, by reducing supply chains, CO2 emission, waste.
  • 8. Roadmap to hit the mark The 3EMTool Firstly, a LCA-based ICT tool, called 3EMT (Eco-Energy-Efficiency Management Tool) will be developed and made available for free to companies through the CEEM website (www.ceeemproject.eu). The 3EMT tool will allow companies to self-assess their green performance thanks to a questionnaire. It will also: • let them benchmark with the other Central European enterprises involved in the pilot phase; • send to each company that fulfills the questionnaire a customized Assessment Report; • provide further services and facilities, like a list of Eco-Energy experts sorted per geographic area. The 3EMT tool will lead to an increased awareness in industry managers on cleaner production and energy efficient consumption during the production cycle. 2 Pilot Phase Secondly, Ceem partners will identify 500 companies in the Central Europe regions willing to be involved in the pilot phase. These companies, operating in traditional industrial sectors, will be asked to complete the online self-assessment questionnaire. Their answers will constitute the base for the benchmarking across Central Europe. Companies taking part into the pilot phase will complete the questionnaire eventually with the help of CEEM partners or Eco Energy experts and will receive a customized Assessment Report sizing their environmental performance and highlighting strengths and weaknesses. 4 Involve the policy makers 3 Case Studies 100 companies out of those that will test the 3EMT, will be selected to step up their “green print”. They will complete the 3EMT suggested itinerary and receive the help of the Eco Energy Ceem experts to implement the measures of improvement listed by the Assessment Report. Critical issues and positive results will be tracked by Ceem partners and be used as case histories to promote green production and consumption processes across Central Europe. The 100 case studies will be precious for the project partners and stakeholders to enhance the 3EMT tool, to design further actions and strengthen the efforts towards environmental sustainable production processes in Central European regions. Finally, the policy actors at all levels (national, regional and local) will be involved. Case history and 3EMT tool functions and positive impacts will be illustrated in a Transnational Strategy Document to be adopted by regional and national authorities responsible for energy, environment and industrial policies. CEEM will also establish 5 Territorial Laboratories on regional basis, to discuss eco-energy industrial issues at local level and 1 Transnational Laboratory. It will yearly summon Central Europe authorities with the aim to become a permanent policy forum between companies and policy makers on energy and environmental issues in industry. CEEM ROADMAP 1 7
  • 9. CEEM outputs Helping central European industries clean up production processes 8
  • 10. CEEM expected outputs new, simple, web-based tool for companies to step up their green habits ≥100 ≥500 SMEs will self-assess and benchmark their eco-energy performance case studies will be included in 1 Eco-energy strategy for the Central Europe regions Eco-efficient production processes and consumption patterns will be established throughout Central Europe thanks to the involvement of eco-energy experts, stakeholders and at least 500 companies, with their CEOs, R&D managers and workers. Increased awareness on the issue of sustainable industrial production will spread the economic and social advantages of green economy. What does it mean for EU citizens? It means securing for the next generations a more resource efficient Europe, able to grow and create jobs and major economic opportunities for its citizens, according to the outputs set out in the Europe 2020 strategy2. SMEs play a big role and for this reason are the priority CEEM target: they are potential polluters, they consume lots of energy and raw materials, their needs (goods delivery; supply chain) influence train and road traffic. By helping enterprises in improving their environmental performance and energy efficiency management, CEEM project will foster a durable change towards an ecofriendly development model. 3EMT tool is designed to be scalable and allow companies’ benchmarking across the whole EU in the future, as well as the experience of the ECO Points and Territorial Labs could be repeated and perfected on EU level, to guarantee the policy know-how exchange. “WHEN THE LAST TREE IS CUT DOWN, THE LAST FISH EATEN, AND THE LAST STREAM POISONED, YOU WILL REALIZE THAT YOU CANNOT EAT MONEY” TATANKA YOTANKA (SITTING BULL) 1 52011dc0571 Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions - Roadmap to a Resource Efficient Europe /* COM/2011/0571 final */  2 Brussels, 26.1.2011 COM(2011) 21 - Flagship Initiative Under the Europe 2020 Strategy CEEM outputs 3EMT “Resource efficient development […] allows the economy to create more with less, delivering greater value with less input, using resources in a sustainable way and minimizing their impacts on the environment1”. 9
