Tom and Barry O’Donovan (Rowan’s Technical Lead for Sustainability & ESG) had the pleasure of meeting with Minister Eamon Ryan a few weeks ago at the Guinness Enterprise Centre (GEC) launch of their sustainability cluster. The GEC was recently nominated by Government as a Circular Economy Hub.
The GEC currently houses 10 innovative organisations, including Rowan working in the sustainability space, who met with Minister Ryan at the event to discuss their work. The centre wants to further grow this sustainability cluster, which promotes and embraces green business practices, and attract more innovative start-ups. This includes companies which are developing green technologies and sustainability solutions that will make a positive impact on the planet. In launching this initiative, the GEC also hopes to support further jobs in this space over the coming years. Furthermore, the GEC is building on its own green strategy, investing €500,000 in making its premises more sustainable.
