‘Greening the IFSC’ Project Launched to make Ireland’s Financial Services Centre one of the most Resource Efficient in the World

Green IFSC, in partnership with the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) and Dublin City Council, has created the ‘Greening the IFSC’ initiative in a bid to ensure Ireland has one of the most resource efficient financial centres in the world.

The first of a kind project has also been designed to help companies operating from the IFSC measure their carbon footprint and come up with a plan to reduce resource consumption (waste, water and energy) – and ultimately reduce costs.

The project launched by Minister Rabbitte today, at Citi’s Environmental Expo 2012 in Dublin, sees eight companies across 10 offices in the IFSC – which collectively employ more than 7,500 people and have a total energy bill of over €5 million – come together in a pilot project to cut energy consumption and reduce costs.
