Best practices, from around the world and from Cyprus, are identified and are presented in this interactive database to allow for inspiration, replication and exploitation. These have been selected based on their ability to engage in socio-economic and environmental sustainability, and exhibit synergistic characteristics. This database is continuously updated. Three types of practices are included in the database:

  • Enterprises that operate in accordance with sustainability principles,
  • Innovative and sustainable business practices, and
  • Clusters, which present examples on how businesses and organisations can co-operate as a means of promoting sustainability.
