Killarney, home to the pioneering coffee cup project, has been chosen to be the first hub for the exciting new Climate Action Programme launched by Fáilte Ireland.

Additionally, it is also planning to be the first town in Ireland to provide community-wide energy monitoring, solar generation and benchmarking.

Killarney also has an initiative in place to become the largest Electric Vehicle charged destination in the country.

Sustainable destinations lead to carbon reduction, cost savings and sustainable tourism and it is what locals and visitors want as they seek a better way to live and play.
Tackling climate change is one of the biggest challenges and opportunities facing businesses today. With rising costs impacting the sector, reducing carbon emissions is a smart way to save money and boost a reputation as a sustainable tourism business. 
A new plan – Vision Killarney: Ireland’s Most Sustainable Town 2030 – is about to be launched.

Killarney Chamber of Tourism and Commerce is organising a meeting, at which the plan and the benefits available to businesses and individuals will be outlined.

It will be held in the Killarney Avenue Hotel on Wednesday, March 27 at 6.00pm and everybody is welcome to attend and play their part in realising this ambition for Killarney.
