The Life ECO-Cluster Project

ECO-Cluster - Environmental COoperation model for Cluster is a project coordinated by the Appennino Tosco-Emiliano National Park and co-financed by the European Union within the LIFE+ Environment 2009 Program (LIFE09 ENV/IT/000188).

The project started on the 1st of October 2010 and ended on the 31st of March 2014, with the aim to develop an environmental management system model for "Cluster".

The model was developed starting from the already existing instruments of environmental management and certification (ECAP Directive, EMAS, Ecolabel...), using each time the most adequate features in order to develop a versatile management system, specifically studied to meet the needs of the Small and Medium Enterprises.

The developed model was tested in the "Cerreto Laghi" tourist cluster situated within the National Park, involving the local tourist operators in a management committee.

For further information it is possible to read the PDF Layman's report of the ECO-Cluster Project.
