Codema Awarded for Energy Efficiency
24th September, 2014
We are delighted to announce that Codema has won the Public Sector Magazine’s ‘Excellence in Business Award 2014’ for our energy efficiency services in public buildings.
Codema is very proud to receive this award, which recognises our commitment to working with Dublin’s local authorities to reduce the city’s CO2 emissions and achieve the ambitious climate and energy targets known as “20-20-20” targets.
Dublin has made some very positive developments in terms of energy efficiency, as was evident recently in Codema’s Monitoring and Progress Report for the Dublin City Sustainable Energy Action Plan. The report showed how Dublin City reduced its energy consumption by 36 per cent from 2006 – 2011.
Dublin City Council also reduced its energy consumption by 22 per cent during this period, meaning that the local authority is one step closer to meeting the national target of a 33 per cent reduction in energy consumption by public bodies by 2020.
South Dublin County Council, meanwhile, is currently progressing a range of evidence-based energy and sustainability related projects, with the aim of ultimately informing the preparation of future plans.
Fingal County Council has been encouraging more sustainable development through energy use efficiency, and increasing the use of renewable energy, in all new building projects in its area.
