Eco Commerce Center (ECC)
The ECC in each geographic location brings together our Preferred Service Providers (PSP) and individuals and organizations in Eco Commerce. An ECC puts all the serives associated with Eco Commerce under one roof providing essential regional business and trade services, and education and training stimulating the economy of the geographic location it serves.
An ECC virtual or live address gives a business prime and continuous access and exposure to all the services, organizations and individuals essential for success in Eco Trade. An ECC in web-based virtual location or physical location is a business center, complementing and supporting the existing services of private business, government, NGOs, academia, and non-profits.
The purpose of an ECC is to provide CEC chapters and working groups a place to work, or a virtual of physical place of business, and deliver actionable knowledge, tools and contacts in a real-time and coordinated manner. Eco Commerce increases because of the easy and fast access to regional and international partners in Eco Commerce.
