Thriving through inflection points in sustainability for the food, drink and horticulture industry
Accelerating sustainability by aligning boards and executive teams with their organisations to create resilient supply chains, enhanced innovation for growth and distinctive organisations.
Programme Objectives - Accelerating Leadership of Sustainability
In 2012, the Origin Green programme pioneered a pathway for the Irish food, drink and horticulture industry to begin its sustainability journey. We must now elevate the issue of sustainability to a guiding principle for businesses. The Irish food, drink and horticulture industry has called out its senior leadership group as the key force in meeting the challenges facing the industry. Customer demand for sustainability and our national requirement for carbon reduction cannot be dealt with by sustainability professionals working alone and isolated in the organisation. Sustainability must be led from the board and the executive team embedding sustainability into business strategy and investment decisions. Immediate action and the accelerated leadership of sustainability is now an urgent requirement.
