The Green Manufacturer Award

The Green Manufacturer Award

This award is open to manufacturers in Ireland with 50+ full time employees who can demonstrate a ground-up best environmental practice in all aspects of running a large manufacturing business.


The judges will want to know everything you do in order to achieve your green objectives and we mean everything – from issues such as transport, energy and water reduction, to staff engagement and community involvement. You must explain what you have achieved so far and what you hope to achieve in the future. And we need to see evidence of an overall strategy that sets out your targets and how you plan to achieve them and hard statistics demonstrating year-on-year comparisons.


Entry is by a 5 A4 page submission; ideally the judges will be looking for a clear plan and evidence that it is delivering on core objectives, paying particular attention to the criteria listed below.
