  11. 11. 3…Sustainability Partner Services Our objective is to match the needs of industry with the capabilities of our Clients and SME Fast-Track companies (Members) and vice versa. By so doing we seek local and global companies that are looking for reduced carbon solutions and then match them against our Members. If we achieve a match we will then develop the company through our SME Fast-Track process to fulfil the needs of the global company. We also integrate superior technology and then try and find an appropriate exit for the company and sales channel through our global relationships and agents.
  12. 12. 4…Parenting Services <ul><li>Many SME Fast-Track companies and some Clients will be too small or not have sufficient capabilities to build a proposal for a particular sales opportunity.
