Report Shows RTÉ's Green Initiatives Resulted In Savings Of €700,000
As you may know, this week we launched our FUEL YOUR SCHOOL competition in conjunction with Electric Ireland and Greenstar - where four primary schools (one from each province) can each win a year's worth of electricity to the value of €5000.
All you have to do is tell us in no more than 400 words what YOUR school has been doing to help the environment. The email address is email@example.com; the closing date is Wednesday, September 11th 2013.
Also this week, RTÉ produced a report showing how it has managed to save €700,000 by implementing some waste-reducing schemes.
So when Miriam O'Callaghan brings her empty bottle to the bottle bank, when Ryan Tubridy prints double-sided running orders and when Joe Duffy recycles his newspapers - it all contributes to savings for the organisation.
And we're not just patting ourselves on the back here, there is a lesson to be learned for other companies in how to save money by being simply 'greener'.
The waste from all the RTÉ buildings eventually goes to an area at the back of the campus where it is all processed - and it is to there we go live, and to Eanna Ni Lamhna!
The report was published by RTÉ, in conjunction with the Environmental Protection Agency and Greenstar; click here to read the full report. And for more details about the Fuel Your School competition, click here.
