Our Green Teams network
How we put our sustainability initiatives into action through collaboration.
The people helping us go green
Inland Fisheries Ireland's Green Team Network is a critical element in our journey towards a more sustainable future. The network was formed in 2019 to collectively and collaboratively develop ideas and initiatives aimed at addressing the climate and biodiversity emergency and at enhancing sustainability across our organisation through local actions.
Seven regional Green Teams contribute and operate locally, each providing one member to a National Green Team that deals with larger scale initiatives. Normally, four meetings are held each year. Group members share information and resources via our Climate Action Sharepoint portal.
Green Team members are advocates for good environmental practices: they are passionate, interested and keen to learn about environmental issues facing us as an organisation and are always keen to share this knowledge with co-workers.
These members encourage and advise colleagues on specific measures to save energy, assist with raising awareness of wider issues such as waste minimisation, water conservation, sustainable travel, biodiversity at our properties and act as the local key contact for sustainability-related issues within a particular building, office, or field base.
Members also positively promote the Green Team role and are available as a first point of contact for staff on all sustainability issues.
