VEKI in brief

Over the coming years the Netherlands must reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 25% compared to the 1990 levels. The objective of the Accelerated Climate Investment in Industry (VEKI) subsidy is to support investments by industrial companies in tangible and intangible assets that contribute to the cost-effective reduction of CO₂ emissions or emissions of other greenhouse gases in the Netherlands.

Who is it for?

  • An individual industrial company that carries out a project at its own expense and risk.
