About Transform

We are a global network of researchers committed to building SMEs’ capacity to accelerate the transition to sustainable and resilient communities. This site follows the research of the ongoing TRANSFORM Project, and presents some of its results and findings. It will develop and grow as the research continues and readers will take different things from it each time they visit.

We’re aiming to show the different pillars and phases of our work, offer a database of our findings, provide small business case studies from around the world in detail and show some of the sustainability practices that those businesses have adopted. Future work includes the development of experiments with small businesses, developing small business capacity to enhance their sustainability practices, the development of resources and tools to support them, and then drawing the findings together, the development of policy recommendations and strategic materials to help high level decision makers create supportive environments.
