Gold Members 2020
26 Verified Members
Origin Green continues to evolve to ensure Bord Bia is helping Irish food and drink companies to remain up to date with the evolving needs of trade customers and their consumers, globally. With the introduction of the Origin Green credits system in early 2020, it is now easier to identify members who are performing at a high level or excelling in their sustainability performance.
To retain ongoing membership of Origin Green, companies must subsequently submit an annual review to demonstrate clear progress against the established targets and initiatives set. This annual review is subject to an independent third-party review by our verification authority Mabbett. This ensures minimum programme requirements are consistently met and maintained. Origin Green Gold Membership is awarded to companies who demonstrate an exceptional annual performance on their sustainability targets based on the assessment of our independent verification authority. Companies receive credits for their performance in areas such as raw material sourcing; water and energy efficiency; waste reduction; packaging; and social sustainability. We have established five different membership tiers based on company size and turnover, so that the real diversity of our industry is reflected in the overall Gold membership.
