Zukunft – Umwelt – Gesellschaft (ZUG) gGmbH aids the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) in implementing its funding policy aims. At locations in Bonn and Berlin, ZUG acts as the interface between environmental policy and implementation of concrete funding policy activities. Founded in September 2017, ZUG will initially assume responsibility for promoting BMU’s International Climate Initiative (IKI) in the course of 2018.

With flexible organisational structures and taking a cross-sectoral approach to specific topics, ZUG aims to generate greater synergies for use in effective planning and implementation of funding activities. This will ensure optimal management of public funds on behalf of BMU. The respective project developers and implementers receive advice and support from ZUG.
