Opportunities for green finance for sustainable production
Daw Aye Aye Win, Director General of Directorate Industrial Supervision & Inspection of the Ministry of Industry said, “Through the development of green loans initiated by Tha Bar Wa Project, SMEs can change their business practices smartly, without impacting the environment. According to the rules and regulations for SMEs Department, we will give emphasis to those businesses which practice recycling and apply green technologies in their industry. Hence, today we have witnessed Tha Bar Wa project is supporting the government’s policy.”
“Basically, under the green finance category, SMEs can apply a hire purchase loan for installing solar panels in the existing business for energy saving process. Processes that reduce negative environmental impacts such as wastewater treatment system, or substituting lights and bulbs with LED technology are also eligible. They can also apply for green finance loans by investing in a wastewater treatment plant in their factory and other technologies which save fuel,” U Saw Hunter Win Ye, Head of Department, SME Banking of the A bank explained.
“Actually, I didn’t know what green finance was? But after attending this workshop, I realized that this kind of system is really helping the environment and is supported by international organizations, such as WWF and SBFIC. Hence, it is really beneficial for any SMEs who are eligible for acquiring such banking services and are in need of credits to expand their businesses,” Daw Aye Thida Aung, owner of Great Nature traditional fruit juice said.
