Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council (dlr) in collaboration with Business in the Community Ireland (BITCI) and the Environmental Protection Agency is hosting a free breakfast seminar on Tuesday July 11th in the Clayton Hotel Leopardstown aimed at building capacity from a resource efficiency perspective in Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the dlr area.  

The seminar will be delivered in partnership with SSE Airtricity, the Musgrave Group and Dundrum Town Centre, who support dlr County Council’s objective of increasing responsible environmental practices through direct engagement between corporates and SMEs in both their supply chains and their locality.

This free workshop is aimed at small to medium enterprises to support them to be more environmentally responsible and thereby save money on their water, waste and energy bills

The seminar will use Case Studies to articulate what being an environmentally responsible business means in practice and will give insight into what environmental criteria organisations look for in potential suppliers when procuring goods or services. However in order for attendance at the seminar to have a sustained impact action must be taken and to facilitate this SMEs will be offered the opportunity to avail of a further facilitated seminar to review existing resource efficiency practices and create an Environmental Policy/ Action Plan for their organisation. SMEs based in DLR will also be able to avail of a one-to-one site meeting with DLR County Council’s Green Business Officer to explore the option to attain an environmental certification if desired.

The free breakfast seminar for SMEs is being held on Tuesday July 11th 2017 in the Clayton Hotel Leopardstown. Full details at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/go-green-how-smes-can-cut-costs-tickets-35343976786
