iBlue Workshop on Sustainable Business Models for SMEs

Crowne Plaza Hotel, Limassol, 19 September 2019

The iBlue Project aims to support small enterprises in the Mediterranean yachting sector adapt and integrate key strategic objectives in sustainability, environmental management, and corporate social responsibility.

Supported by the EU Interreg-Med Programme, the iBlue Project has developed a 3-Pillar Business Model for use by small- and medium-enterprises. This Model adds important strategic objectives and metrics for sustainability and social awareness to three existing analytical tools:

  • The Business Canvas Model
  • The Resources-Processes-Value Framework
  • The Influencing Forces Model

Navigator Consulting supported the pilot testing of the iBlue project in Cyprus by applying the sustainability methodology to a small enterprise in the boatbuilding sector.

On Thursday, 19 September, the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce & Industry (CCCI) is organising a workshop entitled “3 Pillar Sustainability Business Model Methodology” in Limassol. The workshop will inform participants on the iBlue business sustainability business model which is based on the three pillars ‘Environment-Society-Economy’.
