In order to make corporate processes sustainable and future-oriented - in the sense of ESG criteria - high investments are often necessary, which are associated with corresponding financial risks. For many companies, it therefore makes sense to examine the possibility of receiving public funding in the course of implementing sustainability projects. This is because the sustainable transformation of the economy and thus of companies is a central item on the agenda of political decision-makers in Germany and Europe. 

Against this background, the federal and state governments, as well as the EU Commission, have adopted extensive subsidy packages. This promotes overarching ESG goals and creates new opportunities for the national economy.

Within the framework of professional subsidy management, we support you in the acquisition of subsidies: from project analysis and eligibility checks to the application process and securing the use of funds.

This is how we support you in generating funding for your ESG projects


1. Initialisation

We analyse your project proposals for funding-relevant issues. This is done on the basis of project documentation, workshops and interviews.


2. Subsidy scouting

On the basis of the funding-relevant topics identified, we identify suitable funding programmes, conduct initial exploratory talks with funding agencies and draw up corresponding requirement catalogues for the funding programmes.


3. Subsidy portfolio

ESG projects usually have high compliance requirements. Often it is not only about technical innovation, but also about people who will have to master the innovative technology in the future. Innovation, environmental, energy and qualification programmes are often at the forefront. We support the development of a funding strategy and a funding portfolio.


4. Risk Management

In order to avoid risks in the application process, for example through double applications, double approval or incorrect calculations, it is advantageous to actively involve controlling. Take advantage of our advice on the necessary communication and cooperation processes.


5. Submission of applications

The preparation of application documents is often complex and time-critical. Our qualified team supports you in the preparation of the application documents and accompanies you professionally in the further application process, for example profiles, exposés, calculations, exploitation plans or proofs. We are also happy to support you in identifying technology partners and/or establishing consortia.


6. Allocation of funds

It must be possible to clearly allocate funds received to the approved projects, otherwise there is a risk of reclaiming the funds. Audit-proof proof of the use of funds should therefore be prepared for funding received. Here you can benefit from the extensive experience of our experts.
