Strengthening green start-ups as transformation engines. Projects to improve the visibility and networking of the green start-up scene in Germany

Transformation engine green start-ups: The project, which is funded by the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU) (German Federal Foundation for the Environment), aims to use suitable communication and networking measures, as well as target-group-specific information offerings, to help make green start-ups in Germany more visible and to network the green start-up scene more effectively. The aim is to strengthen green start-ups in their role in the development towards a Green Economy. Better visibility and networking serve to tap the potential of green start-ups as a transformation engine towards a Green Economy and thus contribute to energy system transformation, climate protection plan 2050 and other sustainability policy objectives.
