Forum Ökologisch-Soziale Marktwirtschaft (FÖS), internationally known as Green Budget Germany (GBG), is seeking economic solutions for the great environmental and social challenges of our time. We are committed to a continuous ecological fiscal reform that improves ecological and economic sustainability. FÖS focuses on the topics of the ecological fiscal reform as well as energy, transport, resources and agricultural policy.
With economic analyses, scientific policy advice and discussions with representatives of politics, business and the civil society, GBG supports the transgression of an ecological and social market economy. It offers a platform for scientific and political debate on the implementation of economic instruments in German and international climate and environmental policies.
We work independently and according to scientific standards.We develop scientific results and adapt them for political actors and the public discourse. As a network of independent masterminds we both give impetus and create consensus.
