Ensuring compliance of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with environmental regulations is a substantial policy challenge for environmental authorities worldwide.

This document provides a starting point for developing such a programme by suggesting specific steps that can be taken to adopt compliance promotion tools in Georgia and by demonstrating good international practice. The report also assesses the benefits and limitations of various tools, the role of key stakeholders and practical examples that support policy recommendations to promote SMEs environmental compliance in Georgia. Certain instruments, for instance voluntary agreements, are not discussed here due to their limited applicability to SMEs.
