Global Environment Centre Foundation(GEC)

Support Project for Expanding Environment and Energy-Saving Business in Asia

The GEC has served as secretariat to the Kansai Asia Environmental and Energy Saving Business Promotion Forum (Team E-Kansai; a membership of 190 companies and associations as of the end of May 2021) since May 2013. Building on Team E-Kansai initiatives thus far, METI Kansai commissioned us to undertake the Support for Local Company Innovation Business in FY2020.

Based on Team E-Kansai, the project is building a network with government agencies and local business associations in Asian countries to support market development and advanced project creation of companies related to the environment and energy conservation.

Activities in key areas

For this project, we designated China (Guangdong Province), Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand as key areas, and developed frameworks for cooperation with local business associations and government agencies with the support of coordinators. We have also supported the creation of new projects and the development of sales overseas through various events such as seminars and business matching.
