Bord Bia has announced a series of programmes for Origin Green members, aimed at enhancing sustainable business operations through greener packaging management.
In advance of the upcoming Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) requirements, Origin Green will hold the second iteration of the successful Pathways to Net Zero programme, which provides participants with the awareness and knowledge required to undertake the CSRD climate change-reporting requirements and additional Origin Green emissions reporting, according to Bord Bia.
Sustainable business practices are fast becoming an increasingly important topic, with a focus on individual sector climate targets and emission reduction goals.
Origin Green has worked with Lean & Green Skillnet and 20FIFTY Partners to develop the Pathways to Sustainable Packaging programme, aimed at supporting Origin Green members to integrate sustainable packaging management practices into their everyday operations.
Aligning emerging legislation with global best practice, the eight- to ten-week programme helps companies achieve their corporate sustainability goals.

“Our upcoming Pathways to Sustainable Packaging programme focuses on key areas of everyday business operations that can be improved to protect the environment.
“The programme will provide businesses with [the] critical support and information that they need to implement methods in relation to their sustainability goals.”
The Pathways to Net Zero programme will commence today (Friday 29 September).
