Larkin Engineering in Galway is one of 15 companies to have secured funding from the Environmental Protection Agency’s Cleaner Greener Production Programme (CGPP) this year.

Larkin Engineering is committed to Design For the Environment principles and reducing waste while delivering innovative and quality products for both the public & private sector.

Noel Larkin (MD) believes environmental management one of the factors consider by clients choosing Larkin Engineering as a supplier. "We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with the EPA to reduce our environmental impact and plan to introduce ISO14001 over the coming months"

This is the fourth phase of EPA funding for companies that improve business practices and establish eco-efficiency in producing goods in more environmentally friendly ways, targeting the minimisation of emissions through cleaner production methods. The objective is to achieve a balance between economic activity and protection of the environment while manufacturing.

The long-term aim is to try to ensure that cleaner greener production and eco-efficiency become the established norm in Ireland. The EPA hope that other businesses will learn from and build on past success stories and that will work towards CGPP’s tagline objective: “Better Business in a Better Ireland”.

This project is funded as part of the Science, Technology, Research and Innovation for the Environment (STRIVE) Programme 2007–2013 - under Phase 4 of the EPA Cleaner Greener Production Programme (CGPP). The programme is financed by the Irish Government under the National Development Plan 2007–2013 and it is administered on behalf of the DEHLG by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) which has the statutory function of coordinating and promoting environmental research.
