Since 2001, the EPA has operated a grant scheme to encourage Irish companies and organisations to implement cleaner, greener work practices. Green Enterprise challenges organisations and companies to deliver goods and services in more environmentally friendly ways and to minimise emissions through cleaner production methods.
