Membership Package Upgrade

Engaging with GreenHospitality.ie  

Hospitality businesses can either become a GHP.ie Resource Efficiency Member or just select some of the services a la carte.  We would recommend adopting the membership approach as GHP.ie members receive excellent discounts.

New members should engage a GREENSave package for their first year and then select the package that suits their business – see Membership Packages guide above.  This package includes an initial visit which will greatly assist the member in identifying key opportunities and cost savings actions and generally we find delivers solutions that can save thousands of euro.

Subsequent years membership can then be assessed and simple membership, package and/or certification can be decided on – it’s about selecting the services that suit the business.

GHP.ie recommends that any business spending over €50,000 per annum on Energy, Water and Waste Disposal should sign up for one of our GREENSave Packages  which can include an annual site visit.  This service also incorporates a certification review and benchmark analysis. (Smaller businesses should discuss with GHP.ie what their ideal package should be)

Certification.  It is important to note that by becoming a member of GHP.ie there is no requirement to achieve certification.  This is an optional decision which each business will decide on.  Some will wish to use the certification model as a tool to support changes within the business; others will focus initially on achieving cost savings – GHP.ie will offer whatever support/guidance the business wishes.
