On this week’s episode, we find out about a free initiative that is now open to a whole new range of local businesses in Louth and Meath to help them become more sustainable.


Green for Micro is a free programme that helps small businesses take the first step towards becoming more sustainable and it is now available to companies of up to 50 employees.


Grainne McKeown from the Local Enterprise Office in Co. Louth tells us about what is involved in the programme, the financial supports that are out there for companies to go green and how businesses owners can sign up to take part in the initiative.


Meanwhile, Toward Zero Carbon is one of the consultancy firms that carries out the sustainability audits at businesses taking part in the Green for Micro programme.


CEO Conor Casey says there are many “easy-wins” that businesses are not aware of but that can both reduce their carbon footprint and increase their profitability.

More information on the Green for Micro programme can be found here while here are contact details for the Local Enterprise Office in Louth and Meath.
