Smart and Sustainability Investment Grant



26 June, 2023

In a nutshell:  If your goal is to reduce your business’s carbon footprint by cutting back on waste, using sustainable materials, enhancing energy and water efficiency, and implementing eco-friendly digital practices, the Smart & Sustainable Investment Grant is tailored to meet your needs.


The European Union is committed to becoming the first climate-neutral bloc in the world by 2050. This ambitious target requires significant investment from the EU, the national public, and the private sector. Apart from being an obligation, the twin transition to more digital and environmentally-sustainable business practices provides an opportunity for enterprises to grow, enhance their competitiveness and improve the sustainability of their economic activity.


Eligible investments may benefit from a cash grant of up to €100,000, capped at 50% of eligible costs in machinery and equipment, resulting in the applicant becoming more sustainable. A further tax credit of up to €40,000 may be awarded if the criteria established in the guidelines are met.
