eir is committed to achieving environmental best practice throughout our business. In keeping with this ethos all suppliers of eir must have up-to-date, documented Environmental policies. eir is a member of WEEE Ireland and Repak.
eir is one of Ireland’s major energy users, recently signing a major renewal green energy deal ensuring 100% green renewable electricity for two years.
The fresh eir programme aims to reduce eir’s impact on the natural environment. Projects fall into three broad categories: promoting and simplifying on-site recycling options, reducing the amount of waste created in eir offices, and increasing the amount of employees that use more sustainable commuting options to get to work.
Through the eir Fund – Connecting Communities eir works to support environmental conservation charities. One recent programme supported BirdWatch Ireland as they work to preserve the habitat and safeguard the Irish Curlew.
