Flemish Climate Plan requirement for VLAIO funding
The Flemish Energy and Climate plan, implemented by the Flemish government, aims to reduce GHG emissions in non-Emissions Trading Scheme sectors by 40%. A company’s Climate Plan describes how the company will transition towards low-carbon operations in a climate-neutral Europe by 2050, taking into account the objectives of the Flemish Energy and Climate Plan. As of 1 October 2022, a summary of a company’s Climate Plan will be requested by VLAIO as an admissibility criterion for submitting an application for many of its funding programmes. It is mainly aimed at large companies and energy-intensive enterprises. For more details about this new requirement, read our latest article.
