An Taisce Green Campus
CHI recognises our patients are passionate about climate action and protecting our planet. Many of our patients would have engaged with the ‘An Taisce Green Schools’ programmes through their primary and secondary education. An Taisce run a green campus programme, born from green schools, for third level education institutions and hospitals. CHI registered on the ‘An Taisce Green Campus Programme’ in September 2022 and will work towards achieving ‘Green Flag status’ by 2024. The programme requires 18-24 months of work on improving a combination of An Taisce’s sustainability themes with CHI focusing on Litter and Waste and Energy improvement for our initial assessment period.
