Ireland’s Green Credentials

Ireland is a country supremely well suited to sustainability. Our climate is temperate; our lush, green countryside is perfect for farming; ours seas are teeming with fish.

Our dairy industry shares the lowest carbon footprint in the EU with Austria. Our beef industry, the largest net exporter in the northen hemisphere, is also amoung the lowest. And with our rainfall, in a world facing water shortages, and agriculture requiring 70% of freshwater supplies for irrigation, our water stress index, unsurprisingly is one of the lowest in the world.

It is the proper management of these resources now that matters, and which will further enhance and demonstrate our green reputation. That is where Origin Green, and your company’s participation comes in.
