FREE!!  GIZ is supporting 80 SMEs to apply for Green Freight Asia membership

GIZ, in collaboration with Green Freight Asia (GFA), with support from the European Union (EU) and German Government is currently implementing the “Sustainable Freight Transport and Logistics in the Mekong Region” or EU-Green Freight project in 5 countries such as Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam and Thailand.

Currently, GIZ is calling for 80 SMEs across CLMVT to support them upgrading their capacity as “green carriers” through applying GFA membership and GFA label certification. GIZ will support GFA membership application fee through the EU-Green Freight project. Later on, GIZ and Green Freight Asia will provide a technical support to those SMEs to apply for GFA Label Certification. Overall steps are as follows;

As for Step 1, to get membership fee support from GIZ , if you are interested to prove yourself a green freight leader, please join us this program by submitting 1) a request letter + basic profile of company and 2) an application for Green Freight Asia membership + a copy of company’s registration to GIZ by 31 May 2018.  You can download GIZ application forms from https://greenfreightmekong.org/documents/
