Smart and Sustainable Investment Scheme 2021
The European Union is committed to becoming the first climate-neutral bloc in the
world by 2050. This requires significant investment from both the EU and the
national public sector, as well as the private sector. Apart from being an obligation,
the twin transition to more digital and environmentally-sustainable business practices
provides an opportunity for enterprises to grow, enhance their competitiveness and
improve sustainability of the economic activity. Malta Enterprise, as a pivotal
economic development agency in Malta, will be supporting business in their
investments to incentivise the adoption of these twin transition paths for growth.
The Smart and Sustainable Investment Grant provides business funding to support
the undertaking of investments that lead to more sustainable and digitalised
processes leading to the enhancement of competitiveness of the enterprises through
the optimisation of the use of resources in their activities.
