The need to develop green economy is promoted lately more frequently nationally and internationally, gaining support from both the governments of many European countries and at the EU level.

The Moldovan government has also aligned to the development of green economy commitments, recorded in the National Development Strategy "Moldova 2020" and the National Environmental Strategy of the Republic of Moldova, but they are not directly related to green SMEs development.

Within the National Institute for Economic Research, starting with September 1, 2015, the project “Introducing a new priority policy direction “Green Economy for SMEs” in the action plan for the period 2015-2017 on the implementation of the SME sector development strategy for 2012-2020" was started, being implemented with the support of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, at the initiative and in cooperation with the Ministry of Economy.
