EnviroCom Awards 2008


The Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Development Board identified - in its 10 year Plan (2002-2012) - the need for recognition of the county’s environmental achievers.

The Healthy County Forum was established in 2004 under the County Development Board to meet this need as one of its actions. The Envirocom 2008 Awards are presented by the Healthy County Forum whose members include - the Health Service Executive, Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Chamber, An Garda Síochána, Dun Laoghaire VEC, County Dublin VEC and Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown Community Forum.

The objective of the Envirocom 2008 Awards is to stimulate the adoption of good environmental practice in both the public and private sectors and to recognise and honour the county’s private and public organisations engaged in outstanding and innovative environmental management.

It is also hoped that the Envirocom 2008 Awards will encourage the development of sustainable communities which reflect the use and protection of the county’s natural assets - thus promoting healthy lifestyles.

The award categories include -

  • Waste Prevention
  • Energy Management
  • Engaging Communities in Environmental Projects
  • Sustainable Tourism - and
  • Special Merit Award.

The Envirocom 2008 Awards competition is open to businesses and public agencies that operate within Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown county.
