All-Ireland Sustainability Founder and event organiser, Danielle McCormick comments “Many businesses and organisations are now on their own sustainability journeys, and whilst there may still be a long way to go before they reach the end of that ever-evolving process, there are already loads of great initiatives happening out there.

We want to share and celebrate some of the amazing things that are already underway, so my advice to anyone who is interested in getting involved is, don’t worry if you’re not at the end of that process just yet, as it’s the journey that really matters, so get those entries in before the 15th of August!”
