Directive on the Promotion of Climate Protection Projects in the Municipal Environment (Municipal Directive)
The strategic climate protection measures supported by this guideline in the years 2022 to 2027 are aimed at achieving cumulative annual greenhouse gas reductions of around 1,200,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent (net). The investment climate protection measures funded by this directive in the years 2022 to 2027 are aimed at achieving cumulative annual greenhouse gas reductions of at least 400,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent (net) (gross: 600,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent). The aim is to limit the subsidy input per avoided tonne of CO2 equivalent to an average of 70 euros per tonne (net) (gross: 50 euros per tonne). In addition, the total number of municipalities reached with the support of the Municipalities Directive since 2008 is to increase to 6,000 by 2027.
