Enterprise Ireland Climate Action Funding Supports:
Food & Beverage Sector
The transition to a low carbon world has become a defining force for business. For Irish companies, this means opportunities to compete and grow as global investment in a sustainable future accelerates.
As the world aims for net zero emissions by 2050, the strong interplay between sustainability and food is more critical than ever. Within the food industry, sustainability is now recognised as a priority issue.
The new Climate Enterprise Action Fund supports Irish companies to build the capabilities required to deliver sustainable products, services and business models.
This event will provide an overview of these supports and offer practical advice for businesses of all sizes on starting out and continuing their sustainability journeys.
The registration page for the Enterprise Ireland Climate Action Funding Supports: Food is OPEN.
