Going Green in Kerry

Two environmentally conscious Kerry hotels this week showed off their green credentials as part of a new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) initiative called Greening Irish Hotels.

The Derrynane Hotel and the Dingle Skellig Hotel were among 56 nationwide to engage in the unique program which aims to reduce the environmental impact of the businesses.

Speaking at the launch of the final report of the programme, EPA director, Larry Stapleton, said the project had resulted in reduced costs for hotels, giving a win-win outcome for business and the environment.

“The Irish hotels industry has been environmentally benchmarked for the first time in this pilot program which has delivered the blueprint for better, greener business for Irish hotels,” he said.

“What we would like to see happen now is that the momentum from this programme will be carried forward,” Mr Stapleton added.
