Welcome to the website of ZUG gGmbH
Zukunft – Umwelt – Gesellschaft (ZUG) gGmbH is a federally-owned, non-profit company founded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
We support BMU with the implementation and management of its funding policy programmes and projects. At locations in Bonn, Berlin and Cottbus, ZUG currently has around 170 staff members working at the interface between environmental policy and the implementation of funding policy measures.
We aim to use and further expand synergies in the planning and implementation of funding activities through our flexible organisational structures and a cross-sectoral approach to our work. We also advise implementers of BMU funding programmes and projects and support them in their activities.
