A call to action this week as the UN Secretary General refers to the IPCC climate change report as a “Code Red” for humanity. (https://www.irishtimes.com/news/environment/climate-report-is-a-code-red-for-humanity-says-un-secretary-general-1.4643234).
One way of taking immediate action is by joining the EcoMerit Community, getting expert environmental support and saving your business money in the process. You may even be able to get government funding to help.
The climate crisis is at a tipping point, the science is irrefutable. Without committed action from all sectors of society, the consequences for humanity will be dire.
The good news is we know many inspiring people who are committed to safeguarding our future. Members of the EcoMerit Community exemplify this commitment by taking meaningful and sustained action. We know that effective climate action is possible because we’ve seen it first hand.
Over a 10-year period, the EcoMerit community has achieved average emissions reduction of over 60% (or more than 9% annually) saving thousands of tonnes of carbon and exceeding Ireland’s annual target of 7% as per the recent Climate Action Bill. (https://ecomerit.ie/performance/). As well as cutting emissions, our members have also cut their costs.
The Government is providing funding to help SMEs with their environmental improvement projects. EcoMerit can help you access this funding, with a 100% success rate in securing SEAI Community grants and a growing number of Green for Micro mentoring projects.
