Welcome to the Winter issue of Sustainable Ireland magazine which now has an exciting new digital ‘sister’, Sustainable Links, coming to a mailbox near you on a regular basis over the coming year.
Sustainable Links is all about linking you, the reader, to the very latest news and events as well as new sustainable innovations and products in both words and videos. It will be emailed on a regular basis, meaning you will be kept right up to date with all the latest developments in the energy, waste management and environmental sectors, not just here in Ireland and the UK, but globally. This is a brand new venture for us here at Sustainable Ireland and we look forward to having your input and your support.
So, back to this issue: we have a comprehensive look back at our annual Sustainable Ireland awards which is also featured in our new ‘Sustainable Links’ edition which has
been recently emailed; if you didn’t get it, let us know and we will email it without delay.
On a less positive note, sad to learn of the imminent demise of Kilroot Power Station, which faces closure by the end of May, having recently been excluded, along with Ballylumford, from the all-island supply auction. The decision threatens to make redundant all 150 workers onsite as well as the 120 direct, full-time contractors who are employed by local firms.
Meanwhile, with the September deadline for transition to the new ISO14001:2015 standard fast approaching, we have a report on what you need to do. We also turn the spotlight on Granville Ecopark , leading the way in Ireland within the Anaerobic Digestion sector; this is an award winning company that provides an unbeatable Circular Economy experience in the waste sector.
