FOUR Donegal companies were among just fifty Origin Green companies awarded Gold Membership status for industry leading sustainability achievements in areas such as packaging, energy, biodiversity, and community engagement
Drioglann Sliabh Liag, Irish Fish Canners, Island Seafoods Ltd. and Norfish Ltd. have been awarded Origin Green Gold Membership following extensive auditing across a range of sustainability initiatives, at a ceremony held by Bord Bia and Origin Green.
Origin Green introduced Gold Membership in 2020, recognising members who are performing at a high level or excelling in their sustainability performance. The new scheme has driven Irish businesses to further increase their focus on sustainability issues.
To attain Origin Green Gold Membership a company must demonstrate exceptional annual performance in areas such as raw material sourcing; water and energy efficiency; waste reduction; packaging; and social sustainability. This year’s Origin Green Gold Members excelled most in the areas of energy, packaging and community engagement.
