BIM Water Stewardship Support Programme
Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM) is running a National Water Stewardship Programme, developed specifically for the Irish Seafood Industry.
The programme aims to provide seafood processing sites with a structured approach to managing water on site, as well as support at each step as they progress on their journey to better water stewardship.
Save Water, Reduce Costs
Following a successful pilot of this programme last year, seafood processors like Irish Fish Canners, Kish Fish, Norfish and Goatsbridge have achieved significant efficiencies and cost savings.
Feedback from pilot sites indicates the key benefits from this programme include:
The programme is anchored on the “Five Steps to Better Water Stewardship”, a framework that provides an actionable approach to rolling out water stewardship across all sites. Throughout this programme, your site will receive support at each step as you progress on your journey to better water stewardship.
What do Seafood Processors think of the Programme?
