About the Green Clubs Initiative:
The Green Clubs Programme is a partnership between the GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association and Local Authorities across Ireland.
This partnership has its origins in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Champions Programme launched by the Department of Communication, Climate Action, and Environment in September 2019.
The Green Clubs programme is an all-island initiative and aims to bring GAA clubs on a sustainability journey focusing on the themes of Energy, Waste, Transport, Water and Biodiversity with over 40 clubs from across.
The Local Authorities are seen as a key enabler for the Green Clubs programme. A single point of contact has been agreed for each Local Authority where clubs looking for support or guidance can contact the Local Authority for advice. The local authority may in turn direct clubs to other expert partners involved in the programme including SEAI, Irish Water, The National Transport Authority and Road Safety Authority and the National Biodiversity Data Centre.
