The Macroom EcoBusiness Programme (full name: Pilot Programme for Establishing a Regional Eco-Business Recognition Mark) has been implemented by CTC with MacroomE as part of an EPA funded STRIVE research project into the applicability of a local environmental award scheme in towns in Ireland.
Over the two years of the programme almost 30 businesses were trained in various elements of good environmental practice, with 18 achieving award status. Many of the businesses were small high street businesses, though there were a number of larger SMEs also involved.
Outputs from the programme include a number of case studies which are available here for download.
