Green Seafood Business Programme 

Greater efficiencies, and a green environment

Seafood-specific Origin Green planning workshops

Bord Bia have collaborated with BIM to host a series of seafood-specific Origin Green planning workshops. These practical workshops are an important first step in the development of your Origin Green sustainability plan and it has set many companies on the path to full membership of the programme.

During the workshop, participants will be guided on how to develop their Sustainability Charter with guidance from Bord Bia and BIM’s Green Seafood Business Programme team.

The workshops will run from 9.30am to 1.00pm and require no cost to attend.

Dates and Venues:

Please let us know the delegates who will be in attendance and your preferred location. Where possible, we ask companies to send two delegates -  a representitive from senior management and from the personnel directly involved in the development and implementation of the plan.
