Trócaire is committed to measuring its organisational carbon footprint each year to understand and reduce the impact of our activities on the environment.
People in developing countries who are doing the least to cause climate change are suffering its effects the most. Trócaire is committed to tackling climate change.
We work with communities in developing countries who are affected by this crisis.
Through our advocacy and research work we call on governments to reduce their emissions, and encourage our supporters to hold their politicians to account. We also promote positive individual changes to reduce all our carbon footprints.
As an organisation that encourages others to reduce their carbon footprint, we must do the same.
We are committed to reducing the impact of our activities on the environment through our GLAS initiative.
In 2018/19 we reduced our carbon footprint by 9 per cent, ahead of the target set of 5 per cent. Our emissions largely result from international travel, energy and domestic travel.
GLAS policies are now embedded into the organisation’s annual planning and budgeting processes. We are targeting continued and consistent emissions reductions to ensure environmental care is central to our activities.
