What is the LCBA Seal?

The LCBA Seal is an insignia that certifies that a specific project has fulfilled all the sustainability conditions assessed throughout the LCBA Programme by an independent expert committee that measures and confirms the positive environmental, economic and social impact of the project.

The LCBA Seal will be offered on voluntary basis only to business partnerships that have already turned into Legally Binding Contracts. It will give recognition to those projects that have been selected to participate in the LCBA Programme, certifying that the partners of the Joint Business Concept are committed to sustainable business practices and that the project has been awarded with Technical Assistance funded by the European Union.

The use and dissemination of the LCBA Seal will be granted to both the European technology provider and the local buyer of a business partnership once the Legally Binding Contract between the parties has been signed.

The LCBA Seal can be used to promote a specific project only, once that the parties involved receive LCBA certification letter for the use of the Seal.



The LCBA Seal:

  • Certifies the high-quality sustainability conditions of your project
  • Can build the reputation of your project and your business
  • Gives an opportunity to your project to attract other investments on local, regional, national, and international level

To ensure that the LCBA Seal is never compromised, it should stand alone and have no element competing (text, graphics or images). The seal should never be displayed in a position where it could be confused with a company name or in any way that implies endorsement of initiatives not applicable to the LCBA project.
