Sustainable Energy Investing and Financing Activation (SEIFA)
The project’s main objective is to establish an Investment Fund that will invest with a focus on sustainable energy and industrial companies. Among them, there will be manufacturing companies, industrial parks implementing sustainable energy-related projects, industrial and sustainable energy facilities (for instance, sustainable energy parks, sustainable fuels, and infrastructure), and energy service providers (i.e. energy technology companies and renewable energy developers).
The Fund aims to create a Net-zero carbon emission and a fully Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) compliant portfolio. Therefore, every potential investment will be assessed against rigorous sustainability criteria, following the EU Taxonomy for Sustainable Activities and the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR).
The project focuses upon the region of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE Region), including twelve Member States of the European Union (EU): Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechia, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia.
The European Commission is co-funding 10 partners from 8 EU countries. Project partners and their roles are as following GND Advisory (Project Initiator and Investment Advisor); IQEQ Luxembourg (AIFM, Central Administration, and Depositary); Praxio Law & Tax (Legal and Tax Advisors); Metasite (IT Engineering Service Provider); Bulgarian-Romanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Deal Originator in Bulgaria, Romania, and Hungary); B.A.U.M.e.V. (Deal Originator in Germany); Civitta (Deal Originator in Poland, Latvia, and Estonia); Particula Group (Deal Originator in Croatia, and Slovenia); Pedal Consulting (Deal Originator in Slovakia, and Czechia).

Due to the current European security situation, the necessity for energy security is evident more than ever. Urgent efforts are needed to replace fossil fuels.
Sustainability and the transition to a low-carbon, more resource-efficient, and circular economy are key in the long-term competitiveness of the EU economy.
Public investments alone are not sufficient to undertake this massive challenge and private investments will play a key role in the sustainable transition.
