Bord Bia

Bordbia200The Origin Green promise is an unprecedented one. It is the only sustainability programme in the world that operates on a national scale, uniting government, the private sector and food producers through Bord Bia, the Irish Food Board.

Independently verified, it enables Ireland’s farmers and producers to set and achieve measurable sustainability targets – reducing environmental impact, serving local communities more effectively and protecting the extraordinarily rich natural resources that our country enjoys.

At the heart of the Origin Green programme is the Origin Green charter, a guideline document to the workings of the Origin Green programme.

From coast to coast, from seabed to soil, our ever-growing numbers of Origin Green members are fully committed to developing more stringent ways of working which will see 100% of Ireland’s food and drink exports on the road to sustainability by 2016.

Our offerings provide industrial and commercial businesses, both Electric Ireland and non-Electric Ireland customers, with an end to end service in three distinct stages.

Firstly, we utilise the appropriate energy auditing and feasibility studies to help identify opportunities to save energy, reduce cost, and reduce the environmental impact and carbon footprint of the plant.

Secondly, we can then deliver the services you need for your energy efficiency projects or programmes

Finally, upon completion of the project or programme, our team provides the services to put appropriate management systems and tools in place, to ensure that on-going savings are achieved.

Electric Ireland has formed an alliance with PM Group to bring together our extensive experience in the delivery of energy services to large and small businesses across the country and PM Group’s world class expertise in the design and project management of high technology projects.
