Ontario is launching a new program to help small- and medium-sized businesses reduce emissions and become more energy efficient.

The SMART Green program, a partnership between the government and the Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME), is designed to assist businesses to invest in equipment and process upgrades including high-efficiency ovens, dryers, kilns and furnaces.

Upgrades will improve the competitiveness of Ontario's small- and medium-sized manufacturers, help to reduce their energy consumption, save them money, and help Ontario meet its targets for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction.
