Check against the Environmental Support Framework

Governments encourage companies in all kinds of ways to take measures that improve the environment, such as generating sustainable energy or producing electric vehicles. Because environmental protection and sustainability initiatives are high on the Dutch and European policy agenda, state support for such initiatives is permitted under certain conditions. If they fall below a certain threshold, this aid does not need to be notified. Aid above this threshold amount must be notified to the European Commission. In that case, the Guidelines for State aid for environmental protection and energy 2014-2020 (Environmental aid framework or MESK, C (2014) 2322/3) is applicable.

This tool can be used to check whether and to what extent legitimate state aid can be granted under the MESK.
