Two free Seminars taking place in Co. Tipperary in October will explore the ways companies can reduce and eliminate waste in their business; including food waste, energy wastage and water wastage through simple “no cost” and “low cost” means.

On Wednesday October 25th, Zero Waste Cashel in association with the Green Business Programme are hosting a Seminar on Reducing Waste and Reducing Costs in your Business, in Brú Ború Theatre, Cashel (9am-1pm).

On Thursday Oct 26th, Tipperary Green Business Network in association with the Green Business Programme will host a Seminar in the Abbey Court Hotel Nenagh (9am-1pm).

Over the last 10 years the Green Business Programme has identified over €10 million worth of savings for businesses. Savings identified have ranged from €250,000 in one business to €2,500 in another.  Regardless of the size of the savings, the impacts of resource efficiency and cost reduction are important for all business sizes. Reducing utility costs by €2,500/ annum is equivalent to increasing sales by €25,000, when there is a 10% profit margin.

Both events are free but booking is essential.

To register for the Nenagh Event in the Abbey Court, please email and for the Cashel event email
