Green Seafood Business Programme

Sustainable Seafood Processing

About the Programme

Our Green Seafood Business Programme helps Irish seafood processors save money and reduce their impact on their environment, helping make seafood production even greener.

We’ve helped businesses across the seafood sector save money and improve their local environmental imprint through reduced energy, water consumption, and waste prevention management.

The green seafood business programme gives Irish seafood processors the opportunity to become a Clean, Green and Sustainable Seafood Sector.


Who can Apply

Green Seafood Programme has been designed to help any business operating in the Irish seafood industry. First, we’ll ask you to complete our resource efficiency form, then we’ll conduct an on-site assessment, which will identify areas that could be improved.

We’ll give you continued assistance to help you build a more efficient business, as well as onsite awareness training.
