Making the difference with Bord Bia’s Origin Green programme

Compass Ireland’s commitment to Bord Bia’s Origin Green

To become a member of the Origin Green programme led by Bord Bia, Compass Ireland has committed to a comprehensive development plan that sets out clear targets in key areas such as food waste, water and energy use, responsible sourcing of products, health and nutrition and social sustainability. This plan was then independently audited by renowned international auditors, SGS, before being approved to be a verified member of Origin Green.

Eighteen clear targets have been set across several areas of the business including; responsible sourcing, environmental impact, employees and the community, all to be achieved by 2020. It’s also planned that 60% of Compass Ireland’s Irish listed food suppliers will be Origin Green members by that date. Across the business we monitor our progress in all areas and will continue to report on progress in all target areas on an annual basis.
