Our Work

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 advances ecological and economic sustainability. Our work focuses on 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 civil society, we support the transformation of an ecological and social market economy. We offer a platform for scientific and political debate on the implementation of economic instruments in Germany and international climate and environmental policies.

We work independently and according to scientific standards. We develop scientific studies and tailor them to political actors and the public discourse. As a network of independent researchers and consultants we both give impetus and create consensus.
