Affordable and easy access to sustainable infrastructure, goods and services is one of the key drivers of a sustainable lifestyle. A growing number of businesses around the world are working to mainstream sustainable lifestyles by offering more sustainable products and services and engaging people to create more sustainable and resilient ways of meeting their needs. It is against this backdrop that the Green Finance for Small Businesses and Community Initiatives Toward Promoting Sustainable Lifestyles was launched. The project is funded by the Ministry of the Environment, Japan, and carried out by the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), the Energy Research Institute (TERI), Swechha India and OneEarth Canada. It studies the current status of small businesses and community initiatives contributing to the promotion of sustainable living and their enabling environment in cities across India, Canada and Japan.
