Enterprises in the Mid West have been invited to attend an event in University of Limerick on Friday to explore how the transition to a low carbon economy and the increased use of digital technologies can help their business.
A number of State agencies will attend and offer practical advice as well as outlining the range of supports available, including grants and loans, to help businesses on their green journey and to enhance their use of digital technology.
The Building Better Business event is being hosted by the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment and is open to business in the Mid-West region, namely counties Clare, Limerick and Tipperary.
A key element of the Building Better Business event will be a number of staffed stands featuring agencies and organisations including Enterprise Ireland, the Local Enterprise Offices, Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland, IDA, Microfinance Ireland, Strategic Banking Corporation of Ireland, Skillnet Ireland, Intertrade Ireland and the Mid-West Regional Skills Forum.
Staff will also be available to demonstrate the Government’s Climate Toolkit 4 Business, a user friendly tool which will estimate a business’s carbon footprint and suggest actions and supports to help reduce it
Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Simon Coveney, will attend and address Building Better Business and has urged businesses in the Mid-West to come along and find out about the many ways they can improve their business.
Businesses can register their place at the event by visiting enterprise.gov.ie.
