The Green Business Network was established to take advantage of the emerging Green Economy, harness its job creation potential, with the longer term ambition of making Tipperary one of Ireland’s greenest counties.
The Network will aim to support and develop businesses working in the green economy in the County.
Membership of the Network is free for the first year.
TGBN will initially focus on the following key sectors: Buildings & Energy, Tourism, Transport, Food & Agriculture as well as an Other Services sector to include all other types of businesses involved in the green economy locally.
To date, the network has received support from North Tipperary LEADER Partnership, South Tipperary Development Company, LIT Tipperary, Tipperary Energy Agency, as well as from the enterprise boards of North and South Tipperary.
