Small businesses have the potential to drive the green economy from the ground up. Here's how.

The Green Economy Coalition's partner in the Caribbean, CANARI, is working with networks of small businesses to find out how they can catalyse, support and empower SMEs so that they bring co-benefits (economic, environmental sustainability, social equity) and address issues of the informal sector in the region.

They have defined 10 actions that smaller businesses can take to drive a local green economy. Do these actions also apply to SMEs in your region? What do you think?
