EcoMerit was delighted to contribute to a Coral Leisure training event conducted recently with their Energy Champions Team in Portlaoise.
The training covered the global context for action, barriers and benefits to resource efficiency within Coral Leisure and priorities for action in the coming year.
This training was held at Coral Leisure’s inaugural Energy Champion meeting and marked a huge step in how far this role has come and how valued it is. Each Energy Champion has done invaluable work for their own Centres and it must be recognised and given the regard it deserves. It was the first time that the majority of those in the room met; to see the sharing of ideas, as well as the shared enthusiasm for the role, made the entire day worthwhile.
Environmental consciousness is the future for most businesses, as they can see the multitude of benefits that are associated with a greener view, is it any wonder that giants like Microsoft are declaring that they will be carbon negative by 2030. If Coral Leisure wants to continue to lead the way in our own industry, then the Energy Champion role must grow and evolve as well, along with the continued partnership and support from Ecomerit.
“Coral Leisure’s main goal was to create a network to allow each Energy Champion in Coral Leisure to take full advantage of each other’s experience, resources, and ideas. We have a great pool of talent across the group and it is a huge benefit to be able to tap into this and help each other.
This was the first step in taking the Energy Champion role in a new direction and giving it the status and respect it deserves. Thanks to Camillus our “Enthusiastic Energy Engineer” for all his work.
And thanks to Bobby and Christian of Ecomerit for joining us and not only educating but helping to steer us in the right direction.”
