1) Objective

Are you an entrepreneur? Do you operate internationally? Do you buy goods from abroad? It is important to have a clear insight into all aspects of your value chain relating to Responsible Business Conduct (RBC). Do you suspect there may be RBC risks or misconduct? Do you wish to boost the sustainability of your value chains in your producer countries? If so, apply for a subsidy from the Fund for Responsible Business (FVO).

FVO supports Dutch partnerships that wish to: (1) conduct local or regional research into the underlying causes of RBC risks and misconduct in their value chains and implement measures to address them; (2) implement RBC into their business processes in a more effective manner, including measures to end RBC risks and misconduct in their own company; and (3) set up a multi-stakeholder project that addresses RBC risks and misconduct, with a positive impact on manufacturing conditions in their producer countries.

2) Eligibility

Pillar 1 supports partnerships between companies and civil society organisations.

3) Location

Actions must take place in ODA Recipient countries.

4) Budget

FVO is a 4-year subsidy programme (2019–2022). During this period, third parties get annual opportunities to submit project applications. In 2022, a total amount of €4.8 million will be made available for FVO Pillar 1. For each project, they can award a subsidy to reimburse a maximum of 70% of the eligible project costs, up to a maximum of €475,000.

5) Application

You can apply for this subsidy from 4 February 2022 at 9:00 CET until 30 September 2022 at 12:00 CEST. Send us your quick scan no later than 16 September 12:00 CEST.
