Graphedia are the latest company to achieve EcoMerit Environmental Certification. This leading Digital Design Agency recognises the importance of sustainability in a modern business, and chose EcoMerit as a tool to guide them on their journey, through the Greensave Program with Wexford Chamber of Commerce.
Wexford Chamber alongside Econcertive, Wexford Local Enterprise Office and Wexford County Council have run the GreenSave project. Which aims to provide assistance to Wexford businesses to help them become more sustainable while making savings on their energy, waste and water.
‘It’s all really just common sense’, observed Owner Sarah Reck. ‘We recycle, read our electricity and water meters to help us control our usage and we monitor our business travel. Simple things like making sure we switch off lights and appliances all add up. We avoid printing out documents as much as we can and hence minimise our paper waste.’
The EcoMerit programme helps member organisations across Ireland to measure and improve their environmental performance. Certification Manager Phil Walker said ‘It’s great to work with companies like Graphedia who already have a small carbon footprint but who still seek to make new improvements each year. This year they will implement a policy of buying only sustainably sourced paper. They will also be looking more closely at the impact of their business travel.’
