The booklet – entitled “Greening Your Business…how much can you save?” comprises of a range of case studies demonstrating a combined saving of over €700,000 made by companies working with Green Business actoss various industries.
More and more businesses are seeing the value and huge potential benefits of managing resources such as water, energy and raw materials,” says James Hogan, programme manager of Green Business. “This booklet aims to encourage other businesses to follow their lead.
“Greening Your Business showcases some great examples of how companies of all sizes can improve their sustainability by reducing costs and also their environmental footprint through low-cost and and often no-cost measures,” Hogan added. “For example, La Trattoria restaurant in Cork reduced its oil bill by 33% by recovering heat from the kitchen.
