MIA\VAMIL: Proposal Environment list
Do you want to launch an innovative or eco-friendly product? Or do you want to broaden your market? Then have your product added to the Environmental List for MIA and VAMIL. Then your buyers can get tax benefits.
The tax advantage lowers your buyers' financial threshold for investment. Moreover, products on the Environment list have a demonstrably green image.
We adjust the Environment list every year. Investments that no longer meet the MIA and Vamil requirements as a result of technological advances, will be removed from the list or adapted, and new innovative investments will be added. Your product may be one of the newcomers.
The descriptions on this list are designed to cover various techniques with similar environmental performances. Does your environmentally-friendly and innovative product not yet fit one of the descriptions? Then submit a proposal to adjust or add a new description. Your product must meet a number of criteria.
You can submit a proposal for the Environment list 2025 until 15 August 2024.
Submit your product
Have you developed an innovative, environmentally-friendly product or company resource that you want to put on the market? Submit your product to the Environment list. If your product is on the Environment List, your customers in the Netherlands can get a tax benefit. This lowers the financial threshold for the investment.
Companies can make proposals to include a product or business asset on the next Environment list. To be considered for the list, the environmental investment has to:
- have a clear yield for the environment;
- be innovative or still have a smaller market share than the conventional product; and
- be more expensive than the environmentally friendly alternative.
Make your proposal
Follow the 6 steps on how to submit a proposal and what happens to your proposal.
Would you like to submit a proposal for inclusion in the Environment list 2025? Then make sure you do so no later than 15 August 2024. From 1 January 2024, we will consider incoming proposals for the Environment list 2025 and you can expect a response from us.
We recommend submitting the proposal well before 15 August 2024. This will give us enough time for careful processing and the necessary coordination with all relevant government bodies.
It is important that you have additional information on your proposal. For example, think of professional literature, documentation materials. And also which organisations or companies can provide (more) information about your proposal. We may ask you for this.
Do you have any questions? If so, please contact us.
Is your proposal focused on energy saving and storage only? Then submit your proposal to the Energy Investment Allowance (EIA) scheme.
We submit an opinion on your proposal to the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management.
The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management decides on the inclusion of your product in the Environment list.
The Environment list 2025 will be published in the Government Gazette and on this website by the end of 2024.
We do not communicate about the composition of the list. However, we will contact you within 4 weeks of publication to find out whether your proposal has been included. And what the reason is if we do not include your proposal.
You can also apply for inclusion of your type of asset on a so-called 'positive list'. These are lists containing brands and types of assets. We know that these brands and types meet or may meet the requirements of a code description on the Environmental List. We determine this on the basis of technical specifications received from the suppliers.
There are a limited number of positive lists belonging to the Environmental List. Read more about inclusion on positive lists (in Dutch).
