However one of the things I have noticed in the conversations with clients about the tenders they are applying for both in Ireland and overseas is the need to demonstrate that they have considered and are actively managing their carbon footprint.
That’s why I was delighted to hear today about an event taking place next week, the Enterprise Ireland ‘Environmental Forum’ in association to Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Enterprise Board.
And unlike many of the conferences about the environment, this one is FREE to attend – though you need to register.
