Sustainability Academy

The Dublin Chamber Sustainability Academy, sponsored by AIB, has been set up to help businesses become more sustainable and to reduce their carbon footprint.  Launched by the Chamber's President Catherine Moroney at our 2020 AGM Dinner, the Academy was launched in response to a demand from companies in Dublin for help in preparing for a carbon neutral economy.

Supports

The Academy offers participating businesses a comprehensive range of supports, including: training workshops, access to a dedicated series of sustainability events; green public procurement training; access to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP Ireland); support materials; and peer-to-peer idea sharing opportunities.   Dublin Chamber has identified a need for these supports through surveys and focus groups with companies, facilitated by Amárach Research. A number of other services will be added to the Sustainability Academy offering over the coming months as the Chamber continues to work with businesses to identify the main supports they require.

Training

Training and workshops will also be provided on carbon-footprinting, corporate sustainability and on the circular economy. Other core offerings will include helping participating companies, big and small, on the road toward carbon disclosure and green procurement processes.   Dublin Chamber is calling on all businesses in Dublin to get involved in the Sustainability Academy, regardless of what stage they are at on their sustainability journey.
