Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM), Irelands seafood development agency will launch a new Water Stewardship Support Programme for seafood processors on Tuesday, August 25th.

The launch event will be live-streamed and is aimed at members of the seafood processing sector that are interested in developing action plans to increase the sustainable use of water on their sites.

The BIM Water Stewardship Support Programme, run in partnership with Central Solutions and funded under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, aims to assist Irish seafood processing businesses to undertake a series of onsite actions for improving their water management practices and reducing water-related impacts.

The programme, which will also be accepted as part of Bord Bia’s Origin Green programme, was successfully piloted last year delivering significant efficiencies and cost savings for participating firms.

The innovative Programme will be officially unveiled by BIM CEO Jim O’Toole via a live-streamed event at 9.30am on Tuesday, August 25th 2020.
