Irish SME owners are in with a chance to reduce the impact their commercial buildings are making in terms of greenhouse gas emissions through the ENACT scheme.
SME business owners have a last chance to join the last in a series of roundtable events being organised through the ENACT initiative to learn about how they can look at retrofitting their commercial premises and positively contribute to the climate challenge.
Whether you’re currently renovating your office, retail space, hospitality venue, leisure facility or warehouse, or you’ve already completed a renovation and want to share your insights, this is the event for you.

It’s time to ENACT change
ENACT is a three-year initiative, tasked with ‘enabling national action on commercial renovation.
The SEAI funded initiative is led by the Irish Green Building Council, and is run in partnership with the University of Galway, Sustainability Works, Dublin Chambers of Commerce and the Society for Chartered Surveyors of Ireland.
“Commercial buildings are a substantial contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. In these last few years, the operations of the commercial sector have also undergone a huge change,” explained Mary Teehan, head of Research & Projects and ENACT lead at the Green Building Council.
“There are financial, technical, knowledge and behavioural challenges. Through ENACT initiative, we want to enable the commercial sector to overcome those barriers to achieving targets and positively contributing to climate change.”
