The Commission has approved an aid scheme notified by the Dutch Government to encourage projects related to environmental management. These include the setting-up of regional environmental business advisory services, the development of teaching devices and material for training projects in environmental management, and support for information activities in this field.

Under the scheme, projects should contribute to improving the environment in all areas of company management, facilitating the implementation of environmental legislation and government supervision, increasing the involvement of employees in environmental matters, improving measurement and registration techniques, as well as developing methods to implement environmental management systems.

Projects will be selected for their positive contribution to large groups of firms. With respect to an effective dissemination of the results, projects must be endorsed by trade and industry associations, chambers of commerce or participating public bodies.

Aid can be granted under the form of subsidies to firms (mostly SMEs), public utility and transport companies, as well as to local public authorities, trade and industry associations and chambers of commerce. The duration of the scheme is two years. The 1994 budget is ECU 1.75 million, of which ECU 0.55 million is for individual projects. The 1995 budget is also expected to be ECU 1.75 million.
