Ecocert certification awarded to Dundrum Town Centre for sustainable initiatives
Dundrum Town Centre in Dublin has been awarded the county’s first Ecocert certification, recognising the steps it has taken towards sustainability. The Environmental Protection Agency, Local Authorities and environmental consultancy, Econcertive formed part of the steering committee which approved the award.
The certification will be valid for 3 years, during which time the Centre will be continuously surveyed to ensure its adherence to the Ecocert programme. New projects to increase the Centre’s sustainability include a waste minimisation pilot study, a water conservation programme which will examine the potential to use rainwater harvesting or spring water for toilet and washdown uses, and reducing energy consumption with solar paneling.
