Funding – Modelling

Environmental Transition (ET) funding, a new challenge for businesses and communities to integrate

Companies and communities are being pressured by their stakeholders to initiate or accelerate their environmental transition.

  • Funding the environmental transition almost inevitably translates into significant investments. Taking an equity stake in or creating a company, transforming and greening the business model of an existing activity to increase its green share, reducing carbon intensity or financing a 2° strategy, deploying 3rd industrial revolution concepts in a territory, mitigating physical or transition risks, etc.
  • The European recovery plans will make significant funds available to local authorities and companies, and priority will be given to quality projects.
  • Before looking for funding, it is essential to model in order to evaluate the economic and financial impact of the planned strategy and therefore to be able to optimise the approach and maximise its return on investment.
