The All- Ireland pollinator Plan 2021-2025, coordinated by the National Biodiversity Data Centre has now been released. This is a voluntary plan that provides a framework to guide initiatives that will help to protect Irelands pollinators and biodiversity to ensure the protection of our environment. This plan will also implement a long-term monitoring system so that the results of these initiatives can be tracked.

Eamon Ryan TD has announced that an additional €5 million will be made available for litter prevention and cleaning campaigns
Eamon Ryan TD has announced that an additional €5 million will be made available for litter prevention and cleaning campaigns. Part of this campaign will involve an increase in public bins to encourage people to dispose of their rubbish. This announcement came following the release of the 2020 National Litter Pollution Monitoring System Results, which identified cigarette litter, packaging litter, food-related litter and plastic litter to be the main causes of litter in our communities. We think it would be great to see on-street bins provided for the segregation of recyclables, non-recyclables and compostables to encourage source segregation in public areas – hopefully the plan will include this.

Delighted to have had the opportunity to work on this project for Stafford Bonded, that has ultimately resulted in the obtainment of planning permission to expand their whiskey maturation facility at Waterford Airport. Congratulations to all the teams involved in this process.
Minister Eamon Ryan and Tanaiste Leo Varadkar today launched the Climate Enterprise Action Fund with an initial allocation of €10m, to help businesses take action on reducing their emissions and embedding sustainability into how they work.
Today the Minister of State signed the European Resolutions “Adapting Forests to Climate Change”. This is a positive step towards the protection of Irish woodlands and biodiversity.
Ireland’s new Waste Action Plan for a Circular Economy, which was published this September, has climate change at its heart. With Ireland aiming to become a fully circular economy, this policy targets the production chain and Single Use Plastic (SUP) reductions. See the link below for the key actions and targets.
