Founder Members Day of the Irish Nutrient Sustainability Platform

Dublin, Ireland

10 September 2019 - 10 September 2019

The Founder Members Day of the Irish Nutrient Sustainability Platform took place on Tuesday 10th September, in Dublin, Ireland. The vision of the Platform is to promote the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal agenda – with respect to food, waste, climate, economic development and protection of the environment – across the Island of Ireland through a stakeholder-led coalition. The Irish Nutrient Sustainability Platform is founded on the principle that waste is a valuable resource of nutrients, energy and other high-value products. Its mission is to enhance economic prosperity, whilst safeguarding the environment, through development of a circular, sustainable, society by advocating better resource management, reuse and recovery through stakeholder co-operation, corporate responsibility, education and technological innovation. The Platform is established on an all-island basis, and will involve both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. The founding member day was attended by 18 different organisations ranging from policy makers, fertiliser producers, RDF producers, national advisory bodies, and third level education sector. During this event a vote was taken to formally ratify the Platform establishment. It was excellent to have Cork Institute of Technology representing ReNu2Farm at this event.
