Sustainable Business

Every company – from start-up to established – wants to have long-term, sustainable success. Our 2oPlatform and leadership development programmes support companies at all levels of maturity; connecting ideas, innovation, talent, and know-how capital to sustain business at a local and global level—all while contributing to a low-carbon, resource efficient, and circular economy.

350 is the number of cleantech companies in Ireland working on creating and deploying innovation. But investment in low-carbon projects is still the driving factor in creating new products and services. Our programmes are designed to help these SME’s grow in a structured way, transforming Ireland’s smartest sustainability and low-carbon products and ideas into a commercial reality.

Established businesses are expected to improve market share and profitability and reduce their environmental impact. By integrating sustainability into their operations, businesses are managing these long-term risks and strengthening financial stability.
