This week on Ours to Protect we looked at an ambitious project to reduce the carbon footprint of the tourism and hospitality sector on the Dingle peninsula.

Dingle Hub is leading this project, partnered with Fáilte Ireland, Kerry County Council, Údaras na Gaeltachta and the Dingle Peninsula Tourism Alliance.


Did you know…..


Launched in March of this year, the Corca Dhuibhne Tourism and Hospitality Sustainable Energy Community has recruited over 120 local businesses to take part in a project to reduce emissions and become a sustainable tourist destination.


The project is currently in the gathering information stage, surveys have been sent out to participating businesses aiming to gather information that can be used to create an energy master plan giving specific recommendations on how businesses on the Dingle Peninsula can save energy.


Along with current energy use, the project will also look at building specifics, such as building materials and BER ratings.


It will also collect data on food waste, to look at opportunities for improvement in food waste management.
