W Gruzińskim tygodniku FINANCIAL ukazał się kolejny materiał o polsko-gruzińskich relacjach gospodarczych, tym razem zapowiedź misji GreenEvo.
GreenEvo „Green Technology Accelerator” is an innovative project prepared by the Ministry of the Environment of the Republic of Poland, which aims to identify the best green technology solutions, offered by a small and medium-sized polish companies. Participants of the project are selected every year in the competition procedure.
GreenEvo brand brings together the best polish producers in the environmental sector therefore for the consumer it is the guarantee of quality and reliability of the product.
Currently we realize its fourth edition, which, like the three previous has a huge interest. Project participants benefit from the training program and support in the development in the foreign markets. So far 40 companies has benefited from the support and this year next 14 has received such a possibility.
During 4 years of our activity, we have managed to select the most interesting local technologies and in this way to build a solution’s portfolio, which can easily compete with the best global suppliers. Polish entrepreneurs who provide environmentally friendly technologies, define standards for the companies from a different sector. The global economy can become not only more green but also more innovative with those technologies.
Agnieszka Kozłowska – Korbicz, GreenEvo programme coordinator, Ministry of the Environment of Poland
„Since 1989, Poland has gone through a political and economic transformation, which helped it catch up with the most developed countries, owing to investments in environmental protection, stimulation of the development of green technologies and establishment of the institutional framework supporting the green economy. Nowadays, Poland wants to support other countries by sharing the experiences and know-how. An expression of these aspirations is GreenEvo, a project supporting international transfer of environmentally friendly technologies. Capitalizing on experiences from the period of transformation, we want to show other countries, how to establish local technological competence and co-operate with private sector organizations.”
Maciej Chrzanowski, the economic officer at the Polish Embassy:
It may be deceiving to assume that only developed economies can afford investing in green technologies. Returns (or savings) can be significant also in Georgia. One of such fields is energy efficiency, where Georgia has huge potential both in residential sector and in industry. Other promising fields is waste management, currently being reformed in Georgia.
The companies will visit Georgia as part of GreenEvo project between 17-21 June. Range of technologies represented will include: energy-efficient housing, biomass, waste management, post-industrial land recultivation, solar panel heating.
Polish entrepreneurs will be interested to find local partners from private sector, government or municipal administrations. We plan to organise match-making in Tbilisi and several other cities. Georgian companies interested to take part in these events are kindly asked to contact the Embassy of Poland in Tbilisi”
Jakub Wójcik, Vice President, Izodom 2000 Polska, manufacturer of passive houses:
„Houses built using IZODOM technology are ten times cheaper in heating and air conditioning costs, they are both warm in the winter, and cool in the summer. They are fit for seismic zones. What is most important, we closely cooperate with local construction companies. Out technology gives them advantage over competitors by building even five times faster, without additional investment in equipment or extensive training. With growing scale, manufacturing of components can be moved to local market.”
„Majority of our production is exported. The main markets include the European Union, United Arab Emirates, Morocco, Russia and Ukraine.”
„One of possible uses of our technology specifically applicable in Georgia is cost-efficient housing for refugees. Still, the technology also suitable for luxury housing estates”
