Equipping food businesses for the Green Economy

Sustainable Enterprise Skillnet have partnered with Origin Green and 20FIFTY Partners to offer innovative programmes which provide Ireland’s food, drink and horticultural producers with knowledge and training to embed sustainability into their business.

The impacts of climate change are becoming ever clearer, both in Ireland and around the world. No matter the region or industry, now is the time to take action.

Businesses that focus on adopting sustainable practices not only contribute to improving their environment, they also benefit by becoming more efficient, more competitive, and achieving greater employee engagement.


Developing Industry-Leading Sustainability Talent

The Origin Green Academy will support Irish food, drink, and horticulture businesses to develop industry leading sustainability talent.  It will champion the development of the emissions reductions skills required to achieve the ambitious targets across the sector while helping to meet the expectations of global consumers and legislative requirements such as the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive.


Network for Sustainability Management

The Academy provides a platform for members and leaders to exchange new ideas and foster new thinking around the most pressing sustainability related challenges of today.  It offers a forum for sustainability management challenges to be shared and discussed in an open and collaborative manner across organizational boundaries.
