Green Generation Fund


The Fund is focused on sustainable food and household products, two fundamental consumption sectors, both targeting a green transition. Their shift towards sustainability is mainly driven by rising food demand and household consumption due to demographic transitions. The Fund will invest primarily into European companies whose technologies are at early stages of commercialisation. The operation is in line with the InvestEU objective of environment and resources, and financial support to entities employing up to 499 employees with a particular focus on SMEs, and small mid-cap companies. Moreover, the operation contributes to sustainable agriculture, forestry, fishery, aquaculture and other elements of the wider sustainable bioeconomy.
