Climate protection is not only a global mission but a national one as well. For which reason the European Union, the German Federal Government and the Federal State of Berlin have intensified their investments in the field of environmental and climate protection.
Investments in this area concern for instance the energy efficient renovation of buildings, measures to save energy and increase energy efficiency, as well as the increased use of renewable energies. When such measures are successfully implemented, the operating costs for buildings and plants or in the area of mobility for instance can be reduced – something which is highly attractive in view of increasing energy prices. Furthermore, the environment and the climate also benefit, in addition to private households and the public sector.
The German Federal Government and the Federal State of Berlin support climate protection activities with numerous funding programmes and information campaigns. Likewise energy advice, which can make a substantial contribution in the energy savings area, can receive support. Measures intended to protect or improve the air, the ground or the water are also among those eligible for support.
