BeGreen brings together all of the guides and programmes that have been put in place by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), local authorities and other partners to promote waste prevention.

The BeGreen guides provide easy to use information that all sectors can implement to reduce their production of waste, reduce the amount of water they use and reduce the amount of energy they consume. By implementing the guides businesses, homes and commercial activities can save money while acting in an environmentally responsible way.

The BeGreen programmes provide homes, business and other sectors of society with ways in which they can participate in making Ireland a more sustainable country while saving themselves money. By participating in the programmes we can take action to reduce our use of water, electricity and the waste of resources and generation of excess waste.
