Enterprise Ireland

Enterprise Ireland's Environment Unit provides financial supports to improve the environmental performance of industry. Two financial support initiatives are currently available.

1. Environmental Management Systems (EMS): Grant Scheme

Under this initiative suitable applicants may receive grant support towards the costs of engaging independent consultants to install, in full or in part, a certified Environmental Management System (EMS) to ISO14001 or the EU 'Eco-Management & Audit Scheme' (EMAS) standard.

The initiative is aimed at improving the strategic capability of SMEs in the management of their environmental issues and to develop and exploit the market opportunities that improved environmental performance can provide.
