About Us

Green Business is a free and confidential resource efficiency service for all types of SMEs in Ireland.

The service is funded by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the National Waste Prevention Programme with the objective of delivering substantive resource efficiency improvements and cost savings, through waste prevention and reductions in water and energy consumption.

Businesses can request a free site visit carried out by our experienced Green Business advisors. Assessments are undertaken by professional environmental consultants.

A report is then produced which provides recommendations for resource efficiency savings. All information is treated as confidential and is not passed to any other party.

Green Business is also partnering with many different programmes to provide resource efficiency supports in Ireland. Click here to learn more.
